When selecting which institution to study at, young people are reviewing employability rankings alongside reputation, course content and teaching quality.

Employers value hands-on work experience. Consequently, schools, colleges and universities are keen to ensure their IT students are employable and work-ready. They know that employers want new IT recruits who can hit the ground running.

But here’s the rub: it’s costly and time consuming for educators to build and maintain their own live lab environments to give their students this practical know-how – made even more difficult by the pace of change and the regularity of hardware and software updates.

Technology continues to evolve, yet academic budgets are shrinking. Time is in short supply as budget cuts translate into reduced staff headcounts. Instructors want their students to succeed, but there’s hardly enough time to prepare them for certification, let alone ensure they’re ready to enter the workforce.
