Why we exist
The digital economy is a great success story. Digitisation is changing every business in every sector in the UK today. Not only does the digital industry directly contribute £100 billion a year to the UK economy, it's also key to innovation across the economy, underpinning growth, business competitiveness and public service improvement. Digital also drives job growth: 1.8 million people are employed in the UK digital workforce, a rise of 28% over the past decade.
But the digital economy faces a big challenge...
A shortage of skills is preventing businesses and workers from fulfilling their potential in a digital sector.
What’s more, too few young people – especially girls – are attracted by digital careers.
Tech Partnership membership is FREE and open to all employers of tech professionals in the UK. Join today and show your support for creating the digital skills for a prosperous UK digital economy.
If you're affiliated with training providers, awarding bodies, membership organisations, or any other businesses interested in improving the digital skills pool you can join the alliance.
