The UK provides more training for IT professionals than all other European countries, except Denmark.
According to findings published by e-skills UK, around one in four IT professionals in the UK and Denmark (26% and 27% respectively) had received training in the preceding month.
This was against a European average of around one in six (15%). The data is drawn from Eurostat research covering the original group of 15 EU member states.
Karen Price, CEO at e-skills UK, said, "It is very encouraging that the UK is among Europe's leaders in terms of investment in IT professional skills. This is reinforced by a recent report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), which ranks the UK third worldwide in terms of IT professional skills, and fourth in terms of overall IT competitiveness."
The e-skills Bulletin provides a quarterly update of ICT labour market data and trends collected from government and private sources.
