CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--New Horizons Computer Learning Centers is pleased to announce Baltic Training Services, already operating a successful New Horizons franchise in Newcastle, UK, has signed an agreement to take over the development of IT training in London under the New Horizons Computer Learning Centers brand.
New Horizons London was previously managed by Newham College, and New Horizons Computer Learning Centers would like to thank the college for their hard work in developing the market and wish them well as they focus on to other opportunities in Further Education, where Newham is one of the largest and most innovative Colleges in the country.
Chris Eden, Chief Development Officer of New Horizons Computer Learning Centers, said, “This is a very exciting time for New Horizons in the UK, and Baltic Training Services is the ideal partner for us as we consolidate and develop the growing UK IT training market. We are seeing considerable growth in both the B2B and apprenticeship space, which, coupled with the current skills shortage in the IT job market in the UK, means we expect to see that growth continue well into the future.”
Di Gowland, Principal and Chief Executive Officer of Newham College, added, “Our partnership with New Horizons has been enormously beneficial for Newham College, enabling us to deliver high quality training to businesses across many different sectors, as well as to our own students. New Horizons have been hugely supportive throughout our partnership and their innovative methods of delivering training have proved incredibly successful in a rapidly changing business world. Although we will no longer be managing the London branch of New Horizons, we fully intend to continue working closely to provide the best possible training for our students.”
Antony Hobbs, Managing Director of Baltic Training Services, said, “Now that we have partnered with New Horizons, we will be delivering the most up-to-date and technical experience to our customers. I’m looking forward to this the most. As soon as Microsoft release their new curriculum, we will have it straight away and it will give the businesses that we work with a much better chance to progress. We’ve already got a great infrastructure in place, and partnering with New Horizons will only help us to expand and develop our business even further.”
New Horizons Computer Learning Centers will be working closely with Baltic Training Services and Newham College to ensure a smooth transition for students and clients.
