With rapid advancements in AI, the tech landscape is transforming faster than ever before; Microsoft research has revealed that 54% of business leaders are concerned their workforce lacks AI skills, and only 25% have plans in place to recruit the talent to implement it.
To address these challenges, Microsoft UK has expanded its skilling program Get On — established in 2020 to empower 1.5 million individuals with tech skills by 2025 — with the added aim of equipping 1 million more people with the skills needed to thrive in an AI-enabled economy.
QA has been a proud supporter of the Get On campaign since its inception, and we are excited to continue to offer our expertise in AI, data, and cloud training to help Microsoft achieve their goals in a new world of AI-powered technology.

What our clients think
"A key thing for me has been how very customer focused Microsoft are, and QA as well – it's about the communication, relationship and doing the right thing for the learner, ensuring they get everything they need. That might be via the free training, the events that are offered or just their general approach to our business, building on the conversations we have together."
"The Azure training which has been provided in partnership with QA and Microsoft has played a critical role in equipping our colleagues with the technical skills required as part of our technology transformation. Their ability to switch everything virtually for us has also been really important and it’s reassuring to know that key training is still being delivered at this challenging time."
