A comprehensive portfolio of technical, commercial and strategic skills courses is available for executives, managers and technical operatives as well as for delegates from Government ministries.

Together they have the potential to provide access to much of the knowledge and experience of the United Kingdom based communications industry. This knowledge and experience has been developed through the full processes of privatisation and deregulation, leading to a need to survive and prosper in one of the most open and competitive communications markets in the world, re-enforced by their position in the developing global market place.
