e-skills manifesto launched e-Skills Week
“ CALL TO ARMS”
e-skills UK launched the e-skills Manifesto at the UK’s European e-Skills Week conference
The e-skills Manifesto is a call to arms by employers for government, education and stakeholders covering the total e-skills agenda for future action
From e-skills UK research key facts 2010 - 1
The IT & Telecoms sector contributes more than 8% of the UK’s gross value added.
Continued adoption and exploitation of IT & Telecoms technologies could generate an additional £35 billion to the UK economy.
One in every 18 people working in the UK is employed in the IT & Telecoms sector.
The number of IT & Telecoms professionals employed is forecast to grow at an average of four times the UK rate over the next ten years.
From e-skills UK research key messages 2010 - 2
Almost one half of recruiting IT & Telecoms firms report difficulty finding suitable candidates for IT & Telecoms posts.
Around one in ten firms with IT & Telecoms professionals report gaps in the skills of these staff, most often in their business and technical skills.
According to employers, the most common reason for skills gaps amongst IT & Telecoms professionals is that staff are unable to train due to work commitments.
Gender remains a significant and worsening issue, with just 17% of IT & Telecoms professionals in 2009 being female.
Since 2001 there has been a 50% reduction in applicants to Computing degree courses.
Why an e-skills manifesto
No complacency – the UK STILL NEEDS
Over 550,000 IT professionals in the next 5 years to keep up with demand
7.5 million more people to get online
Support for 4 million small businesses to exploit technology for business advantage
Continuing radical e-skills agenda for
e-skills UK – thank you
