Delegates following the Synergy Training Accreditation (STA) Project programme are taking part in a British Computer Society (BCS) pilot to gain the BCS’s new Accredited Course for Tutors and Trainers (ACTT), which is a new and exciting tailor-made BCS Qualification intended for established tutors and trainers involved in the delivery of training. The pilot runs until July 2007, with a view to the ACTT being formally launched in September 2007.

The STA Project programme is run by the training services company Training Synergy – which has over 300 training personnel working on projects across the UK at any one time, an annual turnover in excess of £10m and is currently ranked 15th in the list of the ‘Top 50 IT training companies’, compiled by market analysts IT Skills Research.

Daniel Hanlon, of Training Synergy, which is one of the UK’s largest suppliers of freelance IT trainers, explained: “Typically, those on the STA Project programme will already have a high degree of industry-specific, usually technical, skills. The STA Project programme gives them the skills they need in order to train others to the same standards.”

Although Training Synergy’s STA Project programme is already mapped against the Institute of IT Training's defined skills framework to ensure it conforms to industry accepted best practice with regard to training practice, Training Synergy is keen to also ally the programme’s standards to those of the new BCS Accreditation Course for Tutors and Trainers (ACTT).

Carol Hulm, special projects manager at the BCS, explained: “For some time, our customers have been asking us for a qualification that covers best practice amongst Training professionals.

“There are numerous ‘train the trainer’ courses currently available commercially, each with varying emphases and quality. Moreover, existing trainer qualifications seem to merely refresh a trainer’s existing skills.

“ACTT aims to provide an opportunity and system for professional trainers to channel their continuing professional development (CPD), helping them to continue to add trainer skills to their portfolio and have these skills validated through the ACTT qualification,” she said.

“Devised after a detailed appraisal of all current certified training courses, feedback from existing centres and candidates, as well as having looked at the new National Occupational Standards, ACTT is a benchmark and has been designed to reflect best practice among training professionals in the delivery of training,” Hulm continued.

“It focuses on providing trainers with an opportunity to demonstrate their competence and to have that competence validated independently. This qualification is the equivalent to level 4 on the current National Qualification Framework.

“The focus of the ACTT course is on flexibility, both in its format – that is, the candidates’ ability to pick and mix units of special interest and/or which closely reflecting their job role - and in its achievement via a five-day workshop followed by supported portfolio completion, provided by the ACTT accredited centre,” Hulm added.

“We have an excellent relationship with Training Synergy, which is a long established BCS accredited centre for ECDL and ITQ, and has an enviable reputation for the standards of its training programmes,” said Hulm. “That’s why we are really pleased that Training Synergy have agreed to take part in the ACTT pilot.”
