Why Apprenticeships Are Fuelling The Digital Industry

The Future Of Tech Talent

The tech industry, along with all other industries with an increasing need to create and exist on digital platforms are in desperate need of talent and knowledge to take them forward. For these industries, finding a diverse range of individuals with the right skills and talent is becoming increasingly challenging.

It’s been predicted that in the next ten years, 1.7 million new jobs within tech roles will be created. Meaning that we are in desperate need of new talent to take on existing tech roles, and digital job roles that haven’t even been considered yet. These roles may be in specialist technology companies, or could emerge in businesses of any sector that feel they need people who are dedicated to adapting their business to a more technology focused world.
