Conference focuses on IT user skills
More than 300 IT training providers attended e-skills UK's annual ITQ conference, held last week at the QEII conference centre in central London.
Margaret Sambell, head of strategy at e-skills UK, said: "This event builds on the success of last year’s conference, enabling providers to keep up to date with the latest developments in teaching and assessing IT user skills. This will help them to meet employer needs for increasing levels of IT user skills as technology becomes ever more prevalent in the working environment."
The ITQ qualification aims to help IT users develop the skills most relevant to their particular needs.
According to e-skills UK's research 'Technology Counts: IT and Telecoms Insights 2008', 77 per cent of people now use IT in their job.
e-skills UK says uptake of the ITQ has more than doubled in the past two years, with over 40,000 people starting the qualification in the last 12 months.
The ITQ conference was sponsored by BECTA, OCR, learndirect, BCS, and City and Guilds.
