</The launch of the IoC-supported 2021 Digital Skills Audit>
The Institute of Coding (IoC) is pleased to support the UK Tech Cluster Group’s 2021 Digital Skills Audit. The research returned by the Skills Audit will be useful in helping to understand the issues in digital and tech that need to be prioritised and addressed and in identifying new or emerging trends as well as the impact of the pandemic.
As a national consortium of more than 35 universities and over 200 employers and industry bodies, the IoC is working to respond to the ongoing digital skills gap. Since our launch in 2018, we have been working to encourage a larger and more diverse group of people into tech careers through higher education, and have worked with employers from the tech sector to ensure we are responding effectively.
By developing courses and learning pathways that are designed with employer and sector input, we are helping people to improve their employability and gain the skills needed for the workplace. This Skills Audit helps us to build on that work with fresh insight.
