Digital skills are one of the 3 pillars of our charity's mission to address the increasing skills gap in the developing workforce and improve social mobility and drive gender equity in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). By supporting young people to see the career opportunities available to them in the digital sector we aim to provide them with a pathway to a bright future while supporting UK businesses to find the talent they need to build their business.
