Training and support for the OS Geospatial stack is something that 
http://terrapages.com.au would like to address for the Australian 
timezone, probably in conjunction with outside experts.

We use and deploy most of the key applications in the OS Geospatial 
Stack and hence feel confident enough to teach it, but we have yet to 
investigate what training material is available, or develop our own 
material (which we would put back into a library somewhere).
