New AI Courses Launched In The West Midlands

A new artificial intelligent training programme in the West Midlands has been launched.

Birmingham-based digital skills provider Netcom Training and tech giant Intel have teamed up to deliver the courses which are backed by the West Midlands Combined Authority which has awarded it more than £500,000 in funding.

The courses, which form part of Intel’s ‘Digital Readiness’ programmes, aim to address the digital skills gap by maximising AI use, improving employability and upskilling in the workplace.

The course, called ‘AI for Current Workforce’, will cater for 360 learners, with 120 individuals enrolled in each programme which are aimed at both employed and unemployed individuals.

West Midlands Mayor Andy Street said: “Artificial intelligence will play an increasingly important role in the successful economies of the future so it’s vital that local businesses are able to future proof themselves and adapt to this rapidly changing marketplace.

“That will require staff who are skilled in the use of AI technology which is why this training course in partnership with Netcom Training and Intel is so critical.”

Netcom Training’s managing director Kevin Vashi said: “This collaboration marks a significant milestone in Netcom’s commitment to advance digital skills.

“We were delighted to be selected as the training partner for the delivery of the latest AI training initiative.

“We look forward to…providing individuals and businesses with the tools and knowledge they need to fully reap the benefits of this transformational technology.”
