The IT training industry is characterized by continual change, with a constant supply of new, dynamic companies climbing up the ladder. Likely candidates were asked to submit a short summary of their activities to an independent group of judges, who looked for evidence of high growth, innovation or excellence. From their results, this article compiled the top five. At number one, Dimension Data Learning Solutions, this global IT and services company has a £1.1bn turnover and operations in 30 countries. However, training is a new area, with Great Britain division having been established in April 2001. It grew by 30 per cent last year and is on target to achieve 50 per cent growth this year. What's more, its success has been in the tough Cisco training market. BrightWave specializes in bespoke e-learning content for corporate clients, and around half its work is in the IT training space. Formed in 2000, the firm broke the £1m-turnover barrier in 2002/3 and continues to show excellent growth. Blended learning solutions are now common, with the client or third parties providing the instructor-led element. INSET: Ones to watch.
