BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT announces partnership with Jamaica Technology and Digital Alliance

BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT announces partnership with Jamaica Technology and Digital Alliance.

The agreement provides JDTA members with global perspectives from their profession as well as opportunities for continuous professional development and access to internationally recognised qualifications and professional registrations in IT.

The partnership with JTDA will provide existing BCS members in the Caribbean with stronger links to their profession locally through networks, groups and events. It will also enable BCS’ UK and international members to get a better understanding of the opportunities in the Caribbean’s technology sector.

BCS supports IT professionals throughout their careers, helping them to demonstrate, maintain and develop their competencies and knowledge. BCS membership provides practical tools to support the individual, soft skills development and access to a wealth of resources. Joining requires members to sign a code of conduct, which signals a commitment to professionalism and ethical behaviour to employers. JTDA members can build their profile through the addition of BCS post-nominals and evidence competency by joining BCS professional registers.

There is strong alignment between the visions of BCS and JTDA which forms a solid foundation for the partnership. As the UK’s professional body for IT and the digital industries, BCS’s charitable objectives are to promote and advance the education and practice of computing for the benefit of society. This means building a competent and ethical profession that is diverse, inclusive and plentiful in talent at all levels, and developing a society that is resilient and thriving in the digital world with access to the technology knowledge and skills needed.

Commitment to professionalism

Establishing a partnership with JDTA supports these charitable objectives by helping to build the professional community in a fast growing and dynamic digital economy, which is increasingly becoming a source of international talent and inward investment.

John Higgins, President of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT yesterday said:

“This latest agreement between BCS and Jamaica Technology and Digital Alliance demonstrates a commitment to a common definition of professionalism. This is a significant step in promoting the value and importance of the profession and further enhances the industry’s reputation. Bodies like ours are ideally placed to make the case that society must demand the highest standards of professionalism from its digital practitioners – it’s a cornerstone in helping to build public trust in digital.”
