E-Skills UK's National Skills Academy for IT has set up a training subscription service aimed at small businesses and self-employed IT professionals.
Providing over 1,000 courses and training resources, including material from online training provider, SkillSoft, E-Skills said the service is designed to help small businesses provide the same level of training as in large corporations.
E-Skills UK said: "For too long, small IT companies and individuals have been unable to take advantage of the kind of high quality learning and development opportunities available in larger IT companies. For many, this has meant missing out on developing the skills they need to grow their business or advance their career because they are unable to meet the cost of training or commit the necessary time and resources."
"At the same time, the sheer volume of courses - with no guarantee of quality, relevance or value for money - has made it near-impossible for many smaller businesses and IT professionals to navigate the training landscape," E-Skills UK said.
Karen Price, CEO of e-skills UK, said there is plenty of IT training available in the sector but much of it is unavailable to self-employed IT professionals or small businesses.
"This new subscription service solves this problem by offering easy to access, cost effective learning resources for IT professionals looking to boost their career prospects and earning potential," said Karen Price.
Subscription costs start at £95 for the first year >>
