Peers warn over scale of UK digital skills challenge

Kable - Digital committee chair believes UK has yet to fully understand changes needed to implement competitive IT skills strategy

The chair of the House of Lords Committee on Digital Skills has said the scale of changes required to develop a national strategy for building the UK's IT capabilities to better compete in a globalised economy is much larger than anticipated - at least based on early evidence of its ongoing review.

Rather than a party political issue, committee chair Baroness Morgan of Huyton has said that early impressions from research beginning this month indicate a need for change in how digital skills are managed is much bigger than currently recognised across parliament.
