University of the West of Scotland: IT Academy Spotlight

Great video highlighting the fantastic work that the University of the West of Scotland has done around offering courses and certifications that meet the needs of local employers.

Microsoft’s ITA programme was embraced as the foundation of this work as it offered a more holistic approach to learning, from base concepts through to actual implementation and trouble shooting methodologies.

Based on real world fundamentals, the materials offered through ITA are well suited to the universities flexible approach to learning and offers graduates a ‘currency’ that students can take out into the workplace that helps their employability prospects.
