A structured career programme is being introduced for 200 military information technology professionals. The programme will give staff at the Defence Communication Services Agency (DCSA) access to QA's Career Paths tool, which helps individuals identify their skill needs and proposes courses to meet those requirements. 'Having a tool that define the skills needed for a role is useful as it makes the job-selection process more efficient,' believes Lieutenant Commander Susie Thomson, press officer for the DCSA.
