ABSTRACT
The British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is giving its 8,000 employees access to management training through their desktops. The resource is being used to back up changes in the department's work, which stem from its transformation from the Department for the Environment, Transport and the Regions in 2001. There are 13 modules available, in subjects ranging from staff development to communications. The resource was developed by e-learning company goodpractice.net.
