The Institute of IT Training is launching a new accreditation programme for learning technology.

Encompassing a broader scope than elearning, it includes:
- Generic content, which incorporates generic courseware, templates and models
- Tools which includes authoring, performance support, virtual labs, simulation, collaboration, modelling, and assessment tools
- Infrastructure which includes LMS/ LCMS/CLS, enterprise content management/ performance management, competence management, e-skills portfolio management/e-assessment, and social networking
- Development - the facilitation of client content and bespoke development of solutions using one or multiple learning technologies and consultancy, (services that support the client in the application of learning technologies) which includes strategy, vision and direction, engagement models, deployment, advice and guidance.
IITT chief executive, Colin Steed said: "L&D Managers are under constant pressure to deliver 'more for less', the need for skills has never been higher - whilst the budgets have never been more restricted. The inevitable consequence is that organisations in both the public and private sectors are looking for IT to play an ever increasing role in the process of developing skills and building capability."
