Royal Mail delivers on e-learning

“The Royal Mail has delivered 22,000 home PCs to postal workers as part of a joint initiative with e-learning specialist Futuremedia. The 'Learning for All' scheme takes advantage of tax breaks provided under the government's Home Computing Initiative (HCI), which seeks to encourage IT literacy among UK citizens. Futuremedia supplies Royal Mail employees signing up for Learning for All with a fully installed and supported internet-ready PC for as little as £4.40 a week.

Learning for All is encouraging staff and their families to engage with learning, and playing with computers has raised standards within the workforce generally. School and education are dirty words for many people. This scheme is designed to introduce the benefits of learning in a gentle, family-friendly way."
