The need to eliminate digital exclusion and encourage adults to become digitally competent has never been more important. With the recent pandemic acting as a catalyst to highlight changes required in how individuals function within educational settings, the employment landscape, and everyday life.
Improving the availability of digital skills will help individuals and opens careers in interesting and sustainable jobs, as well as enabling adults to thrive in more traditional non-digital roles.
30% of skill-shortage vacancies involve a lack of basic digital skills (for example, Microsoft Office and use of digital applications) which are now required for a majority of occupations, traditional or otherwise.
