National research into teenagers’ perceptions of the tech industry. (Full report: Digital Skills Gap)
The skills gap. It’s a well-documented issue and a challenge that everyone faces in the tech industry. How has it happened, when did it start and what can we do to heal it? These are all questions we’ve been asking ourselves and ones we went directly to our schools with to see what’s happening at a grass roots level.
The National College for Digital Skills reports that 130,000 new professionals a year are needed in the tech and IT sectors, the equivalent of the population of Oxford. These sectors are also growing 5.8% faster than any other. Generation Z, the future workforce, makes up a quarter of the UK population and will have a huge influence on future tech developments. So we’re finding out what the perceptions of the tech industry are and whether young people consider it a good career choice.
