Latest news & insights
To make sure that the UK is a world-leading digital economy that works for everyone, it is crucial that people have the digital skills needed for life and work. Rapid digitisation is creating surging demand for digital skills across the economy and the current domestic skills pipeline cannot keep up. Digitisation is also leading to rapid changes in the labour market that means some traditional roles are being displaced. There is an urgent need to better match the demand and supply.
The UK tech sector employs over 1.7 million people and adds over £150bn to the UK economy every year. Companies in the digital economy apply their tech and expertise to solve problems and enhance day to day services, providing benefits for consumers across food delivery, health, energy, and many more sectors. At techUK, our aim is to ensure the UK remains one of the best places to start and grow a tech firm with benefits for our people, society, economy and planet.
techUK is dedicated to exploring key transformative technologies driving the UK’s digital economy, society and industry through tech and innovation campaigns.
