UK’s Digital Skills Agenda sees BSC Join Forces with Tech Partnership
November 11, 2014
Research show that it could cost up to £2bn annually if the UK fails to source 750,000 skilled digital workers by 2017.
In response, the British Computer Society (BCS) has teamed up with the Tech Partnership to work, across a range of initiatives covering significant gaps in skills development, toward supporting the UK's digital skills agenda. The Tech Partnership is the network employers who collaborate to create skills for the digital economy.
Karen Price, CEO of the Tech Partnership, adds: "Employers are committed to working together as the Tech Partnership to ensure that IT sector and profession can flourish. Investing in skills and training is key to this, and to UK economic growth. Through our collaboration with BCS, professional abilities can be recognised at every level, from apprentice to the most senior manager, and employers can share market intelligence, opinion and best practice."
