The news that some universities are going out into British companies and other organisations to develop tailor-made courses for adults in work is a welcome development. For too long, universities have lived in their own little world where, if they got enough 18-year-olds, the money would roll in and staff could continue teaching the same material, year after year. Now that is changing. Nudged by the Government, the universities of Coventry and Chester are joining local companies to improve the skills of their workforces. It should be a win-win situation - universities will make money in the long run, and the country will benefit from better-skilled staff.

The culture of celebrity dominates TV screens, many newspapers and magazines and, ever-increasingly, bookshops.

Jade Goody has topped the charts for HarperCollins. Penguin has splashed out on a self-improvement manual by Victoria Beckham, while Orion has bought a second autobiography from Welsh warbler Charlotte Church (above). Hodder has just acquired Billie Piper, Dr Who's sidekick. And Pan Macmillan has signed yet another Osbourne, Jack.
