BT wins 'Best IT Training' award at Skillsoft 2013
BT has won the 'Best IT Training' award at Skillsoft's 2013 Innovation Awards.
Following a period of extensive judging, the communications company was honoured for its new approach to IT skills development in today's rapidly changing IT environment
The 'Best IT Training' award recognises an organisation that effectively addresses the complexities of technology while keeping pace with the ever changing standards and systems. BT won the accolade for its flexible learning programmes, called Accredited Learning Pathways (ALPs), which combine a mix of informal technical and business awareness skills alongside evidence of on-the-job experience, knowledge sharing and external accreditation.
Carl Douglas, learning architect for BT TSO, said: "We are absolutely delighted to receive a Skillsoft Innovation Award and this highlights our commitment towards continuous learning and development across the company. Our ALP programme has had a massive impact on both employees and the wider business and is now seen as the key enabler for IT skills development in strategically important areas."
Hosted annually, the Skillsoft Innovation Awards honour clients for their work in corporate learning and development. The purpose of the awards program is to recognise innovative ideas, powerful programs and inspiring leaders who are helping to transform the corporate learning landscape.
"We are proud to recognise BT for their accomplishments in utilising learning technology to drive results and engagement with their biggest asset - their employees," said John Ambrose, senior vice president, strategy, corporate development and emerging business, Skillsoft.
