Employers don't need to get to grips with the funding themselves regarding e-learning, as 48 premier business centres, accredited by the Adult Learning Inspectorate, have been appointed to help companies plot a course through the red tape to identify funding streams. This provision includes business consultancy planning and training needs analysis. HMD is one such organisation, with more than 20 years' experience in planning and providing government-funded training. People can do the training at home, at work or in one of four HMD sites. Learners can also combine any number of options, and remote tutors are available to give email support. INSET: Where to get your money.
