Tech City UK chief exec: 'The UK is creating digital jobs faster than we can fill them'

We’re on an amazing trajectory, typified by unrivalled success stories and record growth in the tech sector. But there is a potential problem. The rapid progress of our digital industries could be prematurely stymied by a lack of tech skills within the British workforce. The plain fact is that the UK is creating digital jobs faster than we can fill them. A recent study found that Britain will need 745,000 additional workers with digital skills to continue growing the economy over the next four years. The government’s recent introduction of computing into the primary school curriculum is an important reform. Founders and CEOs who are hiring say that universities are still not teaching enough practical digital skills that are so important to today’s fast growing digital businesses.

The challenge is to start creating employees and entrepreneurs suited to our growing digital economy. Finally, we need to democratise access to all tech-related skills. Concordia Language Villages.
