Abstract: A yearlong pilot project undertaken in the UK set about delivering online training to 100 Small to Medium sized Enterprises (SMES), which equated to 500 employees, all within Manufacturing. The ‘Cawskills Project’ delivered online IT training directly to employees. The findings from the project have informed the development of a generic but adaptive model for SMES to facilitate the need for training by considering the operational demands, resources constraints and infrastructure. This paper presents a model, which brings together principles of teaching and learning practices evident in classroom based education along with the learning requirements of SMES and employees. The incorporation of online learning aims to deliver training content, which is Just in Time (JIT) and proposes training events informed by SME’S strategic direction.
