Skills Train

SystemSystem Posts: 8,583 Community Managers
I'm sure you've all heard of skills train that offer a training program to become accredited in IT.

I'm looking for something similar but where I only have to pay for the exam and buy books tol earn before my exam.

I'm having trouble finding any information on google, so can anyone point me in the right direction.

    Hi,

    Great that you are thinking about what training you want to do.

    The best place to start is E-Skills, the skills sector organisation for the IT industry. (http://www.e-skills.com/careers). They are the government-backed non-profit agency tasked with helping ensuring that the IT industry has people with the right skills.

    Other than that, try your local college or Connexions agency (in England), or a job centre should be able to advise you where you can access local courses and/or funding.

    Best wishes,


    Olly
