Study reveals internet's vital role in training

The internet can play a vital role in providing access to training for socially excluded people, according to latest research.

A Greater London Authority study published this week claims that socially excluded people make far greater use of the internet than the average UK web surfer for all activities except financial transactions.

Training and education sites are most popular - visited by 63 per cent of socially excluded people compared to 40 per cent of the wider population.

E-mail is used by 89 per cent of socially excluded people, against 72 per cent for the wider population.

London mayor Ken Livingstone said that the report underlines the importance of providing free internet access in libraries, community centres and UK online centres.
