Independent Training Services



We are now offering fully-funded digital skills training to employers across South Yorkshire. Read on to find out how this can help boost your business!

As the COVID-19 restrictions imposed on businesses continue to ease, many employees will be glad to see the back of remote working – particularly those who are less keen on digital workspaces like Zoom and Microsoft Teams.

The transition to these new methods of working has highlighted a vital truth, however: in order to maintain stability during uncertain times, employers must be confident in the digital literacy of their workforce.

This has led to an increase in demand for specialised training programmes, particularly in areas where a digital skills gap is prevalent. For those seeking to upskill their employees ITS, with the support of European Social Fund (ESF), Sheffield City Region LEP and the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) is offering an array of fully-funded courses designed to boost digital literacy and IT skills.

Businesses up to 250 employees who fall under the Sheffield City Region area can enrol onto a range of digital courses through the Skills Support for the Workforce programme, which is commissioned by the ESFA and delivered in partnership with the Sheffield City Region LEP. Those in Barnsley, Rotherham and elsewhere in South Yorkshire with a workforce of any size can access the same training through the European Social Fund (ESF)’s ‘Advancing Digital’ campaign.

As a proud partner of both programmes and an experienced provider of commercial training, ITS are perfectly placed to help you upskill and future-proof your workforce. All our digital skills courses can be provided for individuals or groups, delivered at your business premises, in our classrooms, online or using a blend of these approaches to suit you. 

Stephen Hepworth, Managing Director of ITS, has a proven track record of delivering programmes aimed to boost employability and longevity in business. He said:

“The SSW and Advancing Digital campaigns are a fantastic opportunity for employers in South Yorkshire to assess the digital abilities of their workforce, identify any gaps in knowledge, and fill those gaps.

“It’s more important than ever for businesses to move with the times – continued professional development, especially when it comes to IT and digital, is a huge part of that.”
