At all stages of life, everyone should have the thinking skills to thrive in the digital age.

The UK is facing a skills crisis. There is a lack of young people with sufficient work-ready digital and computing skills. To avert this crisis, every child in every school should have access to a world-class computing education, and to get these digital skills, we need to improve the supply of qualified, capable and confident computing teachers.

As a society, to address the skills shortage for the future, we need young people to leave education with suitable digital skills to secure a worthwhile job, an apprenticeship or go onto further study.

Education is one of our challenges which focus on empowering and supporting people and communities with a clear purpose of making IT good for society. Find out more about the current situation and our activities below.
