Goldsmiths, University of London has joined the Organisational Membership scheme offered by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. Goldsmiths is the first university to join the scheme which has attracted many commercial organisations including; Waitrose, the Post Office, Glue Reply and London Metal Exchange.

 

David Evans, BCS Director of Membership explains: “We’re delighted to have Goldsmiths, University of London, join our Organisational Membership scheme. The university sets very high standards and has a vision which its IT team is instrumental in helping to achieve.”

 

Goldsmiths’ IT department  will now be able to apply for BCS professional membership and access the associated benefits under the scheme which offers a way for companies to increase their return on IT investment and raise the profile of their IT teams. In addition, by encouraging employees to join membership by covering the cost, employers are able to ensure that their IT practitioners are professional and have access to career development tools, industry standards, best practice information and qualifications.

 

Daniel Rubie, Head of Infrastructure at Goldsmiths says: “Organisational Membership is an investment in our people. We have a team of professionals who will help us turn our vision into reality. By being part of this, we will be able to adopt the best practice standards that are recognised across the globe.”

 

He adds: “The scheme will also help individuals map out their career paths and identify how they fit with the industry standard Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA). By doing this, they will be able to identify what they want to achieve in their own careers and how they can achieve it.”
