The Tech Partnership is the Sector Skills Council for Business and Information Technology, covering: software, internet, computer gaming, IT services, telecommunications and business change.

Information Technology (IT) and Communication Technology (Telecoms) is a fast moving and dynamic industry sector and one of the fastest changing in the UK with new technologies constantly being explored and developed.

The Tech Parnership, formally e-skills, has developed a Modern Apprenticeship at Level 2 and Level 3 and a Technical Apprenticeship at SCQF Level 8 in IT and Telecommunications to support the skills needs of the sector in Scotland. These were introduced in 2013.

In 2014, eskills developed a new Modern Apprenticeship at Level 3 and a Technical Apprenticeship at SCQF Level 8 in Information Security, in response to increasing employer demand to tackle cyber security. These are available for use from August 2014.
