The National Skills Academy for IT, which aims to address the development needs of IT professionals in the UK, is to launch a new web site in the autumn.
The Academy said that the site will be aimed at IT professionals, training providers and employers in an effort to make it easier to find a portfolio of industry-valued courses and recognised qualifications.
This will help IT staff to improve their skills and demonstrate their expertise, and could accelerate their careers and earning potential, according to the organisation. It will also give employers the opportunity further to exploit technology by developing the talent of IT staff.
Karen Price, chief executive of e-skills UK, the organisation behind the National Skills Academy for IT, believes that the new site will help ensure that the UK remains a world leader in IT.
"The National Skills Academy for IT will offer a unique opportunity for employers to take collective responsibility for the skills of the IT workforce, " she said.
The site is currently open for individuals and organisations to register their interest ahead of its official launch later in the year.
The National Skills Academy for IT is supported by a number of key technology companies, including Accenture, BT, Cable & Wireless, Carphone Warehouse, IBM, Logica, Microsoft, Oracle and Vodafone.
