Clarity today announced it has been appointed by training provider Firebrand, to assist its growth by highlighting its expertise in supporting employers and employees looking to close the UK’s digital skills gap.
Firebrand is a global provider of accelerated training, offering over 700 certification courses in IT, cybersecurity, cloud, and project management. Since 2001, more than 75,000 students from over 100 countries have achieved their certifications with Firebrand. With its USP traditionally being intensive, in-person training, Firebrand has also truly lived up to its name during the COVID-19 lockdown by pivoting to an entirely virtual Online Instructor-Led training strategy, which has already been commended by the likes of the NHS and BT.
Rachel Gilley, MD of Clarity PR London, said “We met Rob and his team and were immediately on board with their mission to bring professional training to as many people as possible. The strategy we’ve put in place is designed to entirely support that mission. We couldn’t be more impressed by their client base or the team looking to deliver it, both during the current COVID-19 pandemic and, importantly, the longer term.”
Firebrand specialises in cybersecurity and cloud training, as well as apprenticeships. It’s achievements include boosting police skills by delivering specialist cybersecurity training to more than 80 per cent of forces across the country and, as one of the very few providers with existing programmes across the entire suite of advanced digital apprenticeship standards, is a one-stop-shop for all digital apprentices.
Rob Chapman, CEO of Firebrand said, “As a nation, we risk falling behind if we don’t have the right IT skills in the workforce. Unfortunately, many companies are wasting time and money because they are not training or evaluating their staff training effectively. We aim to solve that problem. We chose Clarity as we knew the team was smart and creative and they’ve totally engaged with our mission.”
Clarity has offices in London, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles, and works with B2B and B2C companies in a range of disciplines including ad tech, martech, media, fintech, retail, digital lifestyle, mobile, devices and more. Its client base includes the likes of Hired, ClearScore, FreeAgent, Improbable and ChargePoint.
