We are the leading provider of SDS funded non-traditional vocational qualifications to Level 4 Modern Apprenticeship (MA) standards in Scotland with achievement rates achieved which are in excess of the national benchmarks (2010/2011 contract year, an 82% achievement rate).
Microcom Training has been providing vocational training and assessment for 30 years.
Microcom Training Ltd. came into existence in 1981 as a Glasgow based Limited Company engaged in the development of Management and Accounting Information software packages and the training of staff in their use, thereby addressing the expanding market in the early 80s for computer based business packages tailored to meet the needs of local companies.
In 1982 the Company?s operational emphasis shifted and Microcom Training Ltd. became solely dedicated to the provision of competence based training and development addressing both the private market and Government sponsored training programmes.
Through the following eleven years, the Company gained a leading position in the vocational training field throughout Scotland, providing training services in the latter part of that time to the majority of the Local Enterprise Companies within the Scottish Enterprise and the HIE networks as well as to several of the Scottish bases of major national and international companies.
Vocational qualifications delivered during this period were predominantly in Business Administration, Accountancy and Information Processing. The majority of these qualifications were delivered at SVQ Levels 2 and 3. We now deliver Vocational Qualifications and Training up to and including SVQ Level 5.
In January 1995 the Company was awarded the SQMS standard, formally certificated in August 1995, and the quality management systems adopted were further recognised in June 1995 with the award of BS EN ISO 9002.
