The ITP
The Institute of Telecommunications Professionals (ITP) is the UK’s leading independent institution for people who work in telecommunications. The ITP has a proud heritage that dates back to 1906, when telecommunications was seen as a new industry. Since then, of course, it has become an essential part of modern life – and the ITP has always been here to give a voice to the professionals who work within the sector.

The ITP has been the professional voice of telecoms for more than a century. We have spoken for the industry in its past, its present, and now we are looking to its future. The telecommunications industry has evolved rapidly over the decades, and like all industries, faces challenges. We believe now, as we always have, that talented people are at the heart of a thriving telecommunications sector. Our vision for the coming year is to explore the ways in which we can help shape the future of the telecoms industry through a new apprenticeship scheme. The scheme will aim to provide a constant flow of well-trained, highly-qualified individuals into the businesses who need them. We are committed to working with organisations in partnership, supporting the development of future telecoms talent.
