E-Business: Training body wins pounds 1m funds boost.

Success in the delivery of effective training courses for small businesses has seen newly formed West Midlands e-Learning - which covers the Black Country, Staffordshire and Shropshire - awarded pounds 1 million of Government and EU funding.

The money will be used to help more small business personnel enhance their skills base.

Speaking at West Midlands e-Learning's Dudley offices, spokesman Nick Stokes said: 'Our success is due to understanding that only training relevant to survival and success is really of interest to small businesses.

'Our 100 training centres are themselves small businesses, so positioned to empathise with the challenges of the business world.'

Mr Stokes believes that the small business courses attract enthusiasm as they are seen to add value to daily business activities and processes.

'West Midlands e-Learning understands that limited time, money and resources can be the common factors which frustrate a small business's best intentions,' he said.

'That is why most courses are at little or no cost and the courses can be studied on-line, at a time and location to suit the business.'
