UK among European leaders in IT professional training

The UK provides considerably more training for IT professionals than most other European countries, according to findings published in the latest e-skills Bulletin.

Around one in four IT professionals in the UK and Denmark (26% and 27% respectively) had received training in the preceding month, against a European average of around one in six (15%). e-skills says the data is drawn from Eurostat research covering the original group of 15 EU member states.

Karen Price, CEO, e-skills UK said: "Our IT professionals are essential to the UK's economic prosperity in a rapidly changing global knowledge economy. We must ensure they have, and can continue to develop, the skills they need. The importance of this cannot be overstated: the EIU report concludes that when it comes to global IT competitiveness, skills will increasingly be the basis of IT differentiation at country level."
