BCS introduces new training qualification
The British Computer Society (BCS) has developed a new qualification for tutors and trainers.
According to the BCS, the Accredited Course for Tutors and Trainers (ACTT) qualification offers professional trainers an independent validation of their competence and has been developed to support best practice among training professionals.
Eight engineers from Yahoo! were amongst the first candidates to take the new qualification.
Pete Leavy, BCS qualifications marketing manager, said: "We learned from several bodies, Yahoo included, that they would like a BCS qualification which offers a benchmark for IT trainers.
"We developed and piloted ACTT last year and the first candidates, including several Yahoo! engineers, will complete the qualification at the end of this month."
The course consists of a 5-day workshop followed by supported portfolio completion. The BCS says that ACTT was devised as a 'pick and mix' qualification to give candidates flexibility resulting in a qualification that closely matches and is relevant to their job role. There are both of mandatory and optional units to select from and candidates can study for the qualification in its entirety or select individual units in which to receive certification.
