Addressing the digital skills gap

Each year, digital skills become an increasingly essential requirement for those looking to enter or progress within the labour market. In fact, employers state that one-third of all vacancies they find difficult to fill are attributed to lack of appropriate baseline digital skills amongst applicants.


  • Roles involving digital skills are 59% less likely to become at risk to automation
  • Roles requiring digital skills pay 29% over those that do not
  • In 20 years 90% of jobs will require digital skills
  • Digital Skills are essential entry requirements for two-thirds of UK occupations
  • 3 million people (21%) lack full basic digital skills
