Virtual round table: Join our discussion ‘Mind the UK’s Digital Skills Gap’

Join the debate.  Digital transformation has created an unprecedented demand for technical skills. Why then is there still a growing digital skills gap? 

In this increasingly digital age, the drive for transformation continues at pace.  Project failures, however, are a very real threat for many organisations due to a lack of IT talent and experience. According to an Udacity report in January this year, some 46% of organisations polled suggested lack of available talent was causing their digital transformation projects to fail.  

The shortage of digital talent and lack of sufficient training present even prior to the pandemic has grown rapidly.  51% to 52% of businesses report not being able to recruit people with the right skills, the necessary experience or admit to hiring workers without the right skills for the job, potentially placing projects at risk. 

At our Virtual Round Table on 30th June at 11 am, we’ll be have an in-depth discussion about the challenges facing organisations in the UK today.  Our special guests address the hot topics surrounding the growing digital skills gap to include: 

  • The lack of young people coming into technology roles 
  • How the UK curriculum affects STEM skills for the future 
  • Gender diversity in STEM industries/roles 
  • How IT professionals can keep up to date with new developments in technology 
  • Cost and resource prohibitive training to upskill teams 
  • Attracting and retaining talent 

Join us as we debate ways in which the digital skills gap challenge can be resolved by industry bodies, education establishments, the Government, and the technology industry at large.
