Sun joins the BCS Group Membership Scheme

Sun recently joined the BCS Group Membership Scheme and the BCS kindly produced a press release to accompany the occasion: “Sun Microsystems signs up for BCS Group Membership Scheme“.

I’m very glad that we’ve joined the scheme, for a number of reasons, primarily because it’s a great opportunity for staff enrichment and career enhancement. We’ve already had a number of individuals go forward for Charted IT Professional (CITP); interest and take up has been extremely good too.

Having spent sixteen years in the IT industry I feel that is important that we, as an industry, are promoted and represented by strong industry bodies, and reciprocally that we support them in turn; and personally I am a keen supporter of the “Professionalism in IT” agenda.

The press release has been getting some good exposure and has been picked up by, TMCnet, Computerworld UK, M2, and even got a mention at the Parliamentary IT Commission (PITCOM) website.

There may well be more now if you Google about it.

If you have any questions you’d like to ask me about the scheme, whether your from Sun or another organisation, your welcome to get in touch.
