InfoSec Skills joins ‘National Skills Academy for IT’ Training Partner Network
InfoSec Skills announces its approval as a Training Partner for the ‘National Skills Academy for IT’ Training Partner Network, putting this relative newbie in the industry alongside the big guns of IBM, Reed Learning, the OU and Global Knowledge.
The Training Partner Network was created by the National Skills Academy to help IT professionals access the highest quality education and professional learning resources, which employers in the sector value.
The National Skills Academy identifies and encourages the best providers of professional IT education and training to work together to promote excellence in learning and development. Partners provide cost-effective educational resources that enable career progression, coupled with industry recognition for the professional workforce.
InfoSec Skills was approved as a Training Partner based upon its range of high-quality information security courses supporting both new entrants to the industry and existing security professionals. InfoSec Skills is committed to working with the National Skills Academy for IT to offer employers access to existing and new quality provision, and to increase the uptake of IT professional training.
Terry Neal, CEO of InfoSec Skills, said, “We are so proud to be working with the National Skills Academy for IT, as this opportunity allows me to start to realise the vision I had for InfoSec Skills when I first joined the company: to reach out to the professional IT community with training that is totally fit for purpose, cost effective and reflective of what they need in terms of career progression. We don’t build courses and then go looking for customers, we speak to the customers first then build the courses they need. It’s exactly this approach that has impressed the National Skills Academy for IT, and continues to impress our customers and course accreditation bodies, such as the BCS.”
