As an approved Recognised Centre with Open College Network, we have worked in collaboration with the team at Ubi-Tech to develop a new and bespoke suite of Wireless Communications Technologies qualifications to meet their needs as an innovative training provider in this specialist area.  These qualifications are among the first of their kind for the industry and form part of the training and development offer of a new Telecoms Training Academy Ubi-Tech are launching from 1 March 2019.
"We were looking for a Further Education partner to work with us in developing and accrediting our new and unique courses which are the first of their kind as part of our new Telecoms Academy. I met the Open College Network purely by chance and I put my ideas to them, I was immediately impressed by the forward thinking, enthusiasm and business-like approach that they demonstrated.  We are totally in tune with what we both wanted to achieve, and they have been fantastic to work with. Throughout the process they have been responsive, efficient and overwhelmingly supportive.  They understand the need to encourage more people into STEM disciplines and they have their finger on the pulse with regards to what the telecoms industry needs in terms of skills. We look forward to continuing to work with them and we have great plans with regards to extending the telecoms portfolio programmes to include new technologies such as 5G".
