Digital skills shortage ‘threatens growth’


A growing digital skills crisis is likely to have a major impact on growth over the coming years, a report by a digital education firm has said.

The Code Institute said that over the next two years, an expected 12,000 jobs are to go unfilled in the Irish informatio­n and technology sector, “which will have a direct knock-on impact on productivi­ty and growth”. Significan­t Government investment in the digitisati­on of education is required, the report said.
