The Government is keen for feedback on its site, which is dedicated to helping employers make more informed decisions about training their staff and developing the workforce, and we suggest that you oblige. Content is a tad thin at the moment but it was only launched back in the spring, and it says 'your views are critical in shaping it.' It's nicely designed with clear navigation and is broken down into three sections: Policy Information & Initiatives, which details current initiatives and programmes being run to help employers obtain the skills they need; Support for Training, which focuses on qualifications, courses and awards; and For Training Providers, which also features information on key awards, qualifications and courses. At the moment, these sections largely contain links to other sites that carry the information (albeit very useful ones), but it would be nice to see some original material, reports, articles and surveys in each eventually. If you feel like us, simply click the feedback facility and tell them so.
