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.
