Get ahead with the right digital skills

Digitalisation promises a future all about data, analytics and artificial intelligence. But it will still be powered by our most valuable resource – our people. We want to ensure that everyone has access to the knowledge, skills, and capabilities to participate meaningfully in the new job prospects and opportunities of this digital economy. 

To prepare younger students for the digital future, there are also programmes to increase their exposure to coding and building with digital technology such as Code for Fun and Digital Maker.
