Tech Know-How: The new way to get ahead for the next generation
This report spells out the tech literacy dividend that can be created, highlighting wage premium & GDP uplift resulting from improved tech capability. Improving technical skills can also help to tackle problems with social mobility.
The results of the study showed most young people have strong foundations to build on when it comes to tech know-how, and are ambitious to improve. Improving the next generation's tech literacy could bring significant economic opportunities for individual young people and UK plc.. However we risk missing out as young people's attitudes to tech differ by bakground, gender and region, and employers risk reinforcing divides within their workforce.
