REDDITCH-based firm Ubi-Tech (3R) Ltd has launched a telecoms academy, specialising in wireless communications.
At a reception which included local MP Rachel Maclean among the guests, Ubi-Tech announced their partnership with Open College Network West Midlands, which has led to the development of a trailblazing series of wireless communication qualifications at their Telecoms Academy.
Lee Moore from the Open College Network said: “We are delighted to be working with such a progressive and forward-thinking training provider like Ubi-Tech, and our collaborative approach in developing this new suite of wireless communications technologies qualifications will help ensure Ubi-Tech’s new training academy can be industry leading now and in the future.”
The qualifications are the first of their kind for the industry and form part of Ubi-Tech’s training and development portfolio.
The Far Moor Lane-based firm has a reputation for innovation making it well placed to deliver an environment that meets the needs of the modern telecoms industry.
MP Mrs Maclean said: “One of my missions in politics is to ensure everyone can get on in life and are given the opportunity they need to develop their skills and better themselves.”
“This is clearly at the heart of what Ubi-Tech does. Its brand-new telecoms training academy is clear evidence of their commitment to allowing their employees to grow and develop new skills, as well as providing new opportunities for the people of Redditch.”
Ubi-Tech operations manager Mike Harbon added: “We were looking for a further education partner to work with us in developing and accrediting our new courses and throughout the process Open College Network have understood 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.”
