He said: "Microsoft Learning is excited to be supporting the IITT through the annual IT Training Awards. Engaging learning practitioners in developing innovative content and delivery methods is a requirement of us all to ensure that learners are provided with learning that is easy to access and as effective as it should be. These awards recognise the effort that goes into engaging with business and learners to identify and develop the most appropriate formats that provide learners an opportunity to interact with their learning and to be able to use that new knowledge effectively."

Microsoft is amongst a host of leading names supporting next year's ceremony.
