“New Horizons Computer Learning Centre has grown to become the largest independent IT training company worldwide since 1982, offering more courses, at more times and in more locations than any other computer and business training organisation. Businesses and individuals can choose from hundreds of course offerings, delivered by experts, and offered in hundreds of convenient locations around the world. For many small, medium and large organisations, New Horizons is a one stop-shop for all their IT training needs,” the ICT training institute said.

In this digital age-the quest for quality and revolutionary leadership skill across every strata of the corporate world cannot be overemphasised, thus the reason why New Horizons is introducing new paradigm in the teaching of leadership courses both for ICT professionals and non -ICT professionals.

It has been discovered that 80 per cent of the time when projects fail in an organisation , including government agencies- it is not due to lack of technical competence but mostly as a result of poor leadership skills. Therefore we would like all business mangers and government senior officials to take the New Horizons opportunity and get empowered with the new set of skills required to thrive in business, the ICT training institute said in a statement.
