IT will be one of the first sectors to have a framework agreement between training providers and employers as part of the Great Britain government's skills strategy. The Sector Skills Development Agency has asked e-skills to work out what IT skills will be needed in the future, and to draw up an agreement between training companies and employers to ensure these demands are met. Ivan Lewis, Minister for Skills and Vocational Education, says the skills strategy will enable businesses to compete in the global economy and develop the multi-skilled, flexible workforce essential for productivity.
