Skills & Talent

From basic digital skills and in-work apprenticeships to executive training and formal education; the digital skills gap is recognised as holding back UK plc. Nearly one in four of us have not kept pace and lack the basic digital skills to manage core tasks such as managing information, communicating online or making a transaction. Supporting the development of these skills is an issue for employers, educators and government if we are to fulfil our potential as one of the most digitally competitive nations.
