e-skills UK and BT form national skills academy

Antony Savvas

UK IT skills body e-skills UK and BT are planning a new National Skills Academy to raise the standard of the UK's IT workforce.

The move is part of e-skills UK's strategy of bringing the IT and telecoms industries closer together when it comes to training, in recognition of established converged IT and telecoms technologies.

The new Academy plan was announced at an apprenticeships conference hosted by the Apprenticeship Ambassadors Network in London this week.

The academy aims to help IT staff gain external recognition of their skills to help boost their career progression and help employers boost productivity of new recruits.
