Businesses must help spread digital skills

Writing in City AM, PwC chairman Kevin Ellis say that while there is a huge appetite amongst UK workers to learn digital new skills, many are not getting the opportunity. Research by PwC shows that almost 60% of people without further education say that they have received no opportunity from their employer to learn new digital skills, compared with 44% of degree-educated workers. Mr Ellis says that helping existing employees to upskill is only part of the challenge and calls on businesses to do more to support a much wider group – “such as by joining forces and working with schools and policymakers to share knowledge and experience.”
