The changing nature of the IT jobs market is reflected in record growth in demand for BCS management and business systems qualifications, the society says.
Demand for the foundation certificate in IT service management has doubled in a year, and demand for the practitioner qualification has grown 44%. Demand for business systems development qualifications is also up 44%. On the technical front, software testing qualifications have seen 20% growth.
"There are still great opportunities for certain management skills," said BCS chief executive David Clarke. "IT professionals are seeking to establish new skill sets in a competitive market."
