This month’s news in brief

Win a digital camera by giving your views on blended learning

Take time over the summer to complete Training Magazine’s blended learning
questionnaire. We have teamed up with blended learning publisher Balance
Learning to carry out a major survey into the application and benefits of
blended learning.

The questionnaire was published in the June issue of the magazine, but you
can also complete it online via Balance Learning’s website. Those who return
the survey by 15 August 2003 will be entered into a prize draw to win a superb
Nikon Coolpix 4300 – an easy-to-use digital camera .   www.balancelearning.co.uk/

People Matter

Working in a friendly environment is more important than job security, money
and training according to the latest Employee Attitudes Survey from consultants
Eden Brown. Around 85 per cent of respondents ranked having’ nice people to
work with’ as key factors when choosing a job. However, only half said training
and development was important to them.  www.edenbrown.com

Lack of ambition?

UK employees put less store by attaining further qualifications than their
counterparts worldwide. Only 30 per cent of UK respondents to a survey by
government-backed online academics UK eUniversities Worldwide (UkeU) agreed
that degrees were important, compared to 46 per cent of respondents in the US.
Employees in Hong Kong and Singapore appear to take greater personal
responsibility for their learning and development than in the UK and US.  www.ukeu.com
