Office of National Statistics is using a mixture of computer-based and
instructor-led courses developed by KnowledgePool to train 1,200 people in the
computerised methods being used to process this year’s census forms. The method
of processing involves 31 different job functions and the training covers
personal and technical skills.
different course types range from preparing documents to occupation coding
courses. Many have been specially developed for the census. It is the first
time that the 33 million forms, which form a stack of paper 50 times higher
than Big Ben, will be read and processed by computers.
