At ILX Group we are very excited to announce a brand new partnership deal with Simplilearn, a leading global digital skills training provider based in San Francisco and Bangalore, India. As an authorised partner, we will exclusively bring Simplilearn’s best in-class digital training programmes to the UK market, equipping companies and professionals in various industries with skills needed for the digital future.
With digital transformation rapidly advancing across the globe, this new partnership has enabled us to extend our expertise from project and programme management into digital transformation technology training — specifically in the areas of big data, data science, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and cyber security — all of which will be delivered by Simplilearn. It means we can now provide a comprehensive curriculum that covers all skills required as part of a digital transformation, and demonstrates our commitment to supporting clients through an inevitable change to a more digitally-enabled way of working.
Simplilearn’s blended learning curriculum combines self-paced online learning, instructor-led live virtual classrooms, hands-on projects, student collaboration, and 24/7 global teaching assistance, which complements our own blended delivery offering.
Speaking on the association with Simplilearn, our Managing Director, Russell Kenrick, highlighted that “As a company, ILX has always focused on learning programmes in digital operations such as agile, project management, and IT service management. However, with changing times, we are now shifting focus to offer additional programmes that are aligned to digital transformation technology. Through our best practice training programmes and certification schemes, we specialise in changing behaviours, elevating performance, and improving business outcomes. As part of the UK's commitment towards building a digital workforce of the future, we are excited to collaborate with Simplilearn to provide aspirants access to the world’s best learning content, giving them the opportunity to develop digital skills to meet the demand of changing global trends.”
With a presence across US, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Europe, and the UK, Simplilearn has helped more than one million professionals, across 150 countries, to upskill and prepare for the digital future. Speaking on the partnership with ILX, Krishna Kumar, CEO & Founder of Simplilearn, said, “The UK is today one of the fastest growing global economies, and in today’s digital world it is important that the country’s workforce is enabled to support this growth. Digital skilling is a necessity for both professionals and organisations to keep pace with the global technological advancements and to meet industry demands. Through our association with ILX, we are glad to introduce this new phase of learning through our in-depth technology programmes. With these programmes, professionals and job seekers will be enabled with industry-specific skill sets, making for compelling profiles and a job-ready workforce.”
Krishna added “In the recent global scenario of COVID-19, as businesses across sectors lay off workers, the world faces the biggest unemployment crisis in the modern era. Upskilling and reskilling is essential today and will play a key role in nurturing the ‘fit for future’ workforce, making this a business imperative for organisations especially in a post-COVID world.”
