Learn New Skills Over The Internet With COWEB

Companies that provide training in Coventry and Warwickshire are being given a boost by an initiative that will give them free help.

Firms that help disadvantaged groups are particularly being targeted for help by the scheme called COWEB.

Managed by Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber, COWEB will offer small and medium organisations access to free training on a diverse range of topics .

The project will officially launch on August 1, 2000, when companies can use either CD ROMs or the Internet to train their staff in a variety of specially designed interactive programmes.

They include customer care and Information Technology skills, quality management, food preparation and essential first aid training.

Sponsored by the European Social Fund, COWEB is a pilot project designed to meet and develop solutions to the training requirements of small organisations.

By providing a viable alternative to releasing staff for off-site training, this subsidised package will enable small organisations to achieve better performance by training staff at a very low cost.

Paul Taylor, chairman of the COWEB steering group and Tile Hill College principal said:

"All the colleges involved in developing this unique package over the last year are very excited.

"We believe the combination of our joint expertise, and the European Union subsidy until the end of this year will make a real difference for companies who often struggle to find the time and funds to release their staff for vital training.

Participating Colleges include Coventry Technical College, Henley College, Rugby College, Hinckley College, North Warwickshire College, Stratford on Avon College, Tile Hill College and Warwickshire College.

This offer is only available until the end of 2000, and organisations interested in finding out more should contact COWEB Information and Co-ordination Officer Jane Fleming at The Chamber on 024 7665 4170 or by e-mailing
