Small and medium-sized companies are being targeted by an initiative designed to help improve their information and communication technology (ICT) skills.
In a joint venture between ICL and CollegeNet.UK, a consortium of 11 of the UK's largest further education colleges, SMEs will be encouraged to join the CyberSkills programme. The online training scheme offers participants ICL's distance-learning programmes along with access to tutors, chat sessions, continuous assessment and feedback.
CyberSkills business manager, Mark Horne, said 50,000 people have taken part in Cyberskills Workshops so far. "While ICT skills are rapidly becoming as important as literacy and numeracy, many people are still scared or not aware of the potential and relevance of these new technologies in their daily lives."
