Microsoft UK and “Britain Works”


Just a quick promotion for a programme that Microsoft has announced in the UK around helping get people the IT skills they need to get back into work – here’s a better description taken from the official website;

Given the issue of rising unemployment in the UK, Microsoft is dedicating itself over the next three years to helping get Britain back to work. Through a series of partnerships with nongovernmental organisations (NGOs), community learning centres, and public authorities, we are aiming to help half a million people into jobs in the areas of the economy that will lead the recovery. These will be digital jobs, requiring the use of computer skills, and will be in a range of industries from manufacturing to services and the IT industry itself.
