  16. News Bytes – How to solve the (UK) tech skills crisis? Make IT cool againBy Nick Heath March 14, 2012, 7:38 AM PDT According to Paul Coby, chairman of the CIO board of eSkills UK, the UK is in the grip of an IT skills crisis;  eSkills estimates the UK will need an additional 110,000 new IT workers to enter the workforce each year  Overall the number of applicants to computing courses in the UK is only about one third of the new intake that the IT industry needs  The disparity between supply and demand looks set to continue, with the proportion of new jobs in the IT sector growing nearly five times faster than the UK average  Only 18 per cent of IT professionals in the UK are women  An IT GCSE being developed by eSkills and its partners to focus on areas such as;  programming  games design  web  mobile app development  Students from countries including India and China are embracing careers in technology  applications from overseas students remains “very high”
  17. News Bytes (April 2012)Financial, IT and ‘green’ energy and construction skills are topping the list of skills ingreatest demand in the global job market (Hays recruitment specialist)  Specific IT skills that are in short supply globally include knowledge of  JAVA  .NET  C++There are IT jobs beyond the BombaysMisconceptions about Hamilton and lack of publicity are making it difficult to hire skilled ITpeople (Rob Heebink, General Manager, Gallagher Group Research & Development)  Heebink’s research team includes 65 IT staff working on a range of IT projects from software development to networks  Gallagher plans on hiring a further eight to ten IT workers over the next year  Finding specialists, especially those with .NET skills, is difficult
  18. News Bytes (The UK Guardian March 2012)There is a growing consensus that the way children in schools are being taughtinformation technology is in need of a radical overhaul  Universities want to reverse the decline in applicants for computer science courses  Gaming companies want more programmers  The government wants more high-tech start-ups  Manufacturers want trainees who can design embedded systems.  And head teachers want bigger budgets for even more computer labs.According to John Naughton a big vision is required, as follows; “Starting in primary school, children from all backgrounds and every part of the UK should have the opportunity to: learn some of the key ideas of computer science; understand computational thinking; learn to program; and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of excellence in these activities”
  19. News Bytes Job outlook up as firms look to hireInformation technology was the most buoyant sector with 43.3 per centof companies intending to increase staff.Strong demand for IT staff [Trademe IT Jobs]  Information technology features strongly in the number of advertised vacancies in the first quarter of this year – up 18% on the same time in 2011  There is constant demand for IT people - a common theme throughout 2011 and now 2012  IT also featured strongly in Trade Me Jobs analysis of pay rates - the highest advertised pay rate was for an average salary of $125,505  Christchurch – rebuilding driving strong growth  Auckland & Wellington - growth below the national average
  20. ConclusionThis months 14% decline in ICT job adverts on Seek ICT NZ needs to beviewed in the wider context of the trend towards an increasing globalshortage of suitably qualified graduates and skilled/knowledgeable ICTworkers.There is a continuing need to address future demand for ICTknowledge/skills by  Promoting ICT as a rewarding job/career  Increasing ICT enrolments in higher/tertiary education  Providing incentives for skilled ICT personnel to stay in NZ [or to return to NZ after their OE]  Encouraging skilled ICT immigrants
