Shape Government Policy on Advanced and Specialist Digital Skills

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has commissioned Pye Tait Consulting to undertake a programme of research to understand the UK’s current and future advanced and specialist digital skills needs.

The scope of the review covers the digital technology sector and the wider economy (such as the retail and financial sectors). A key part of this work involves collecting data from employers via an online survey, which can be accessed at: www.pyetait.com/advancedspecialistdigitalskills

The findings will help DCMS as it develops policy to address the digital skills challenge and works to develop the UK’s advanced and specialist digital skills pipeline to meet industry demand. All data obtained by Pye Tait Consulting will be treated confidentially and reported to DCMS anonymously in line with the Data Protection Act 1998 and Market Research Society Code of Conduct.
