IT development skills provider, QA Training, has announced plans to provide "anytime, anywhere" learning over the internet.
The organisation is to invest almost £8 million in its "clicks and mortar" e-learning initiative over the next 12 months, to enable the on-line review, evaluation, purchase and delivery of some 170 courses.
"The training market is changing. With greater pressure on budgets and delegates' time, training providers have to deliver highly flexible, cost-effective training solutions," comments Bob Bradley, recently appointed managing director of QA.
"Whilst traditional methods such as instructor-led training courses will remain a vital element of QA's overall training approach, the internet will become a key delivery vehicle for different types of learning."
The company believes its e-learning solution will be of particular benefit to contractors by allowing them to develop their skills in their own time, without sacrificing working hours or revenue.
