THE enterprise and lifelong learning committee also considered the role of workplace learning and was impressed by schemes at Michelin Tyres in Dundee, Babcock-Rosyth and Scottish Power.
But the report acknowledges that small businesses remain a challenging issue. The committee suggests that this poblem might be eased if the Scottish University for Industry and technological advances succeed in improving access to training. Large employers could also extend their facilities to small suppliers.
But its major concern is the lack of a lead organisation to promote workplace learning.
