Government Framework:
The Department for Education and Skills – E-Learning Framework

Framework – “Supports the development of innovative firms, multi-skilled workers and healthy local and regional economies and labour markets”

- Harrison (2006:35)
Government support - why
E-learning is now a key priority for education and training policy in the UK.
UK is part of a skills deficit - technology can help to train employees up in these missing technical skills.
Computer literate more chance of gaining employment
- Gov (2014)
What more can be done?
Is it going to be possible to keep up with technology? Can budgets cope with this ever-changing industry…constantly upgrading?

Schools still need more computers to meet E-Learning development plans – 0.7m for primary and 0.4 for Secondary

436,000 “ineffective” and 624,000 over 5 years old in survey given to Scottish Businesses

- E-Learning Foundation (2013)

Labour Government – Highly supportive & had initiatives such as Tools for Schools, Curriculum Online, E-Learning Credits

Biggest Achievement – Harold Wilson & Jennie Lee with Open University

Harrison (2006)

Provide Webinars, Emails and Videos if self employed for advice.
Embedded E-Learning into School Curriculum e.g. Interactive Whiteboards
Yearly Strategy reports for how to improve
Training for teachers to facilitate ICT

This could affect business budgets as they are constantly needing to keep up with this tech.

developing a global workforce
adjusting to needs of employees
managing flat organisations

E-Learning has many forms which harness many advantages and disadvantages - however line managers must be able to adapt to different learning styles as not everyone enjoys using E-Learning
Traditional Learning can be used as well which also has advantages and disadvantages - but is overshadowed by the growth & Govt support of E-Learning
