Canning Town is an intermodal interchange station in Canning Town, East London. It is served by the London Underground Jubilee line, the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and local buses operated for London Buses. On 11 November 2015 the Mayor of London announced that it would be rezoned to be on the boundary of Travelcard Zone 2 and Travelcard Zone 3. Until 1873 it was known as Barking Road.HistoryThe first station, originally named Barking Road, was opened on 14 June 1847 by the Eastern Counties and Thames Junction Railway on the south side of Barking Road in the Parish of West Ham. It was renamed Canning Town on 1 July 1873, and in 1888, this station was closed, being replaced by a new station on the north side of Barking Road (near Stephenson Street). The booking hall was replaced in the 1960s, and survived until 28 May 1994. On 29 October 1995, a new North London Line station on the current site was opened. Original DLR plans were that the Beckton line would run directly east/west between Blackwall and Royal Victoria, and the substantial loop to serve Canning Town was a late design change. The DLR station opened on 28 March 1994, but was closed between 6 June 1996 and 5 March 1998 for the construction of the Jubilee line extension. The Jubilee line station opened on 14 May 1999. The North London Line platforms closed on 9 December 2006 as part of the closure of the to section of the line. On 31 August 2011 these platforms re-opened on the new Stratford International branch of the Docklands Light Railway.
Stratford Bus Station serves the Stratford area of the London Borough of Newham, London, England. The station is owned and maintained by Transport for London. The station can be accessed from Great Eastern Road as well as Stratford station.The bus station opened on 16 November 1994 and comprises five stands including one for National Express and Terravision coach services.It replaces an older bus station on the site, which was situated on the ground floor of a multi-storey car park prior to demolition. This former bus station had an underpass link to the old entrance of Statford station at the eastern end of the present station. Buses arrived at the former bus station at the south-western end as they do presently, but instead of looping back on themselves to leave via the same entry point, instead left from the north-eastern end and used the one-way system to loop around Stratford back onto their planned routes. This system is still occasionally used today for buses that normally return to their routes against the usual flow of the one-way system, most often when roadworks are in place on their normal return route.
The Blackwall Tunnel is a pair of road tunnels underneath the River Thames in east London, England linking the London Borough of Tower Hamlets with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, and part of the A102 road. The northern portal lies just south of the East India Dock Road (A13) in Blackwall; the southern entrances are just south of The O2 on the Greenwich Peninsula. The road is managed by Transport for London (TfL).The tunnel was originally opened as a single bore in 1897 by the then Prince of Wales, as a major transport project to improve commerce and trade in London's East End, and supported a mix of foot, cycle, horse-drawn and vehicular traffic. By the 1930s, capacity was becoming inadequate, and consequently a second bore opened in 1967, handling southbound traffic while the earlier 19th century tunnel handled northbound.The northern approach takes traffic from the A12 and the southern approach takes traffic from the A2, making the tunnel crossing a key link for both local and longer-distance traffic between the north and south sides of the river. It forms part of a key route into Central London from South East London and Kent and was the easternmost all-day crossing for vehicles before the opening of the Dartford Tunnel in 1963. It remains the easternmost free fixed road crossing of the Thames, and regularly suffers congestion, to the extent that tidal flow schemes were in place from 1978 until controversially removed in 2007. Proposals to solve the traffic problems have included building a third bore, constructing alternative crossings of the Thames such as the now cancelled Thames Gateway Bridge or the Silvertown Tunnel, and providing better traffic management, particularly for heavy goods vehicles.

Businesses are becoming more reliant on information technology (IT), and there is an increasing need for employees with IT skills and experience. Most office-based employees use PCs on a regular basis and their productivity is a significant factor in the success of the business.
The challenge that most businesses face is to know which IT skills the business requires, which skills existing and new employees have and how to fill the skills gap.
There are many different types of IT skill. However, the most important are those concerned with 'office' skills - using typical office-based applications, such as word processing. The most widely used IT skills qualification in the UK of this type is the European Computer Driving Licence.
