How can we address the STEM skills gap? - Julian Wragg, IT Pro Portal

The Science and Technology Committee recently published a report stating that the digital skills gap is costing the UK economy £63 billion a year in lost GDP. It’s a time of turbulent change, both politically and economically and fostering home grown talent with the most up to date digital skills is more important than ever. We caught up with Julian Wragg, EMEA Managing Director at online IT learning provider Pluralsight, to see what can be done to address the STEM and IT skills gap in the UK. It’s the lack of synchronised technical skills training at a college and university level which is struggling to keep pace with accelerated technology change in industry. There’s also a great array of learning resources available, both free and paid for, including online learning platforms such as Pluralsight.
