Our primary focus is on upskilling workers in employment by providing advanced technical and soft skills programmes. Many of our courses are delivered by Universities and Institutes of Technology and are part-time, and mainly online at Bachelor’s and Master’s level.
We also provide a range of short courses in cutting edge and emerging technologies that are usually provided by expert private sector training organisations both face-to-face and online. These are often in subject areas that companies acting alone might find it hard to fund or find and can more easily and effectively offer as part of a collaborative process.
The network is actively engaged in research and development of new programmes to meet emerging skills needs in the tech space and has pioneered new initiatives in Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud computing, Internet of Things, and Blockchain.
