Using PEST (political, economic, social and technological) analysis, the fourteen page report pulls from a wide range of sources to reach its conclusions. Commissioned by, e-learning provider, Virtual College, the white paper is available free of charge at: For further information, please contact: Roger Moore, Virtual College
