ITEC Learning Technologies and Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, have launched their HAINA (Huawei Authorized Information Network Academy) cooperation. A formal launch is planned and will be held in the next few months in Basildon #Essex
ITEC is also nearing accreditation as a HALP (Huawei Authorised Learning Partner), which means we will be carrying out the training of other trainers from HAINA around the UK.
ITEC is proud to announce it has the first trainer in the UK Qualified to train both students and other trainers.
Huawei is also a world leader in smart cities technologies and is looking forward to expanding its influence in the UK as part of its ongoing relationship with ITEC.
This not-for-profit partnership programme allows academic institutions to deliver Huawei Certification training to their students. The programme not only cultivates ICT talent and helps students become employment ready, but also aids in filling the global ICT skills gap by creating a bridge between academia and industry.
A wide range of key industry areas will be covered by the Huawei ICT Academy Programme and students will have the opportunity to gain industry certification and expertise in networking technologies, security, cloud computing technologies, IT storage systems and big data. Students will gain practical hands-on experience on Huawei’s latest networking technologies as well as being able to download their own personal copy of Huawei’s ENSP (Enterprise Network Simulation Platform) networking simulator.
Kirk Redhead, ITEC’s Business Development Manager, says “The fast-changing nature of technology means that it is crucial for our students to get the best possible hands-on experience to prepare them for future careers in the sector. Participation in the HAINA programme will give our students a great opportunity to challenge themselves and learn from the best in the industry.” ITEC will also be making this learning opportunity available for its apprentices and employers in the local ICT sector.
Huawei is currently cooperating with over 240 universities to open Huawei ICT Academies across China, North America, Europe, Australia and more. Every year, the Academy trains over 16,200 students globally. The Huawei ICT Academy programme also runs a global annual ‘Skills Competition’ for students, giving each country’s winners the opportunity to visit China for the finals and compete with other students from across the globe.
