The digital skills gap
Demand for digital skills already outstrips the supply of available talent, despite high levels of youth unemployment and the ability for young people in Europe to move easily across the EU in search of work.
Urgent action is needed to help young people develop their digital skills and access learning and employment opportunities
Support 10 million young people to access digital skills through our What will you be? programme
This research confirmed our belief that urgent action is needed to help young people to develop their digital skills in order to access employment opportunities and ultimately thrive in the digital economy. Vodafone’s What will you be?大发体育娱乐在线 programme is our response to this challenge. Our two ambitious targets focus on the impact we can have if we can support young people to understand how they can contribute to the digital economy and outline what we can do within our business to provide more digital workplace experiences.
last year, we launched a free smartphone-based platform called <em>future jobs finder</em>, designed to inspire and help young people understand their strengths and skills and find the right job opportunity in the digital economy.
