World-class training to be provided to all Socitm members

Socitm, the representative body for public sector ICT professionals, is set to launch a new training service that will deliver even greater value and knowledge to its members.

The society is taking proactive steps to ensure its members are ready for both future and current challenges, with an exciting new webinar programme delivered by QA, the UK's leading learning and skills development organisation.
The new training offering is a key feature of Socitm’s revamped membership package, designed with input from members and covering subjects that members have suggested.
Over 2,000 individual members will now benefit from award-winning training from QA and a webinar programme that is designed to meet organisational and personal development needs.
Led by QA’s own accredited instructors, these monthly webinars will cover a range of hot topics such as cloud computing, cyber security and digital transformation.
The service includes tools that will allow all delegates to chat, ask questions, vote and view training and presentation materials right from their desktop.
Corporate members who can’t join a webinar when it is broadcast will be able to access it through a new corporate member area on the Socitm website, which will enable them to benefit from the training at their own pace.
In addition to the online training, QA will also deliver instructor-led training at selected Socitm national and regional events around the UK. 
Lauren Mitchell, Socitm Corporate Membership Manager, said: “We believe that the new training service will really enhance the experience for our members. As well as the benefits of the webinar series, members will be able to participate in their own office without any travel costs. With this training in place, we can feel confident that our members will have the skills and knowledge to meet many of the challenges ahead.”
Adam Jones, Head of Sales at QA, said “We are particularly pleased to be delivering this solution to Socitm members as it’s learning that they will be choosing, covering critical challenges the members have, all delivered in a convenient way online.”
The new series of webinars will begin in the New Year. For further information or to select one of the new membership packages, visit www.socitm.net/membership from 2 October.
