Why choose Digital Skills?
The North will need to produce more than 80,000 digital workers. If current rates of growth continue over the next 25 years, then 1.23 million workers will need to be supplied by 2050.
Many older people would like to use the internet more but say a lack of skills is the thing holding them back. The digital skills gap is an important component of wider unemployment – digital skills training is therefore critical in supporting people back to work.
