The Training Foundation signs new long-term Agreement with the Institute of IT Training

The Training Foundation and the Institute of IT Training have today entered into a formal five-year Agreement to extend the successful relationship through which best-in-class training programmes are provided to IITT members. Under the Agreement, The Training Foundation will provide Institute members with an enlarged range of CPD courses covering all key workplace roles across the spectrum of face-to-face training and e-learning.

Colin Steed, Chief Executive of the IITT said, "We have been delighted with the results that The Training Foundation has achieved for our members over the last five years. We are one of the few Institutes for which continuing professional development is a mandatory requirement for membership and it is essential that IITT-accredited courses provide both high-quality skills transfer and excellent value for money to members."

"The Training Foundation's TAP certification programme is now widely recognised across both the public and the private sectors, and is recognised by the IITT towards membership requirements. The close working relationship which we enjoy with the Foundation ensures that all our members, whatever their specialism, will be able to continue their personal professional development via a wide range of skills programmes."

Since 1998 The Training Foundation has provided a Continuous Professional Development programme for Institute members, providing a range of skills development courses for both classroom training and e-learning.

To date The Training Foundation has trained more than 4,000 IITT members. The IITT has provided external verification and certification to successful delegates.

Adrian Snook, Director of Corporate Development at The Training Foundation said: "The IITT has achieved a tremendous amount since its launch in 1995, through its focus on raising training quality at all levels. We are delighted to have played a part in this, as now recognised by this new Agreement. Every IITT member can be sure that we are determined to empower them to achieve the very best IT training skills, whatever their delivery medium."
