What issue are we trying to tackle?
Technology continues to rapidly evolve and has transformed how we all live and work, it’s important to keep in mind that the driver to technology’s success is not the technology itself, but rather the creative people often behind the scenes. Therefore, it’s vital to invest in people and acknowledge the need for more skills and development in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in order to keep up with the pace of progress.
While the UK government has addressed the increasing need to invest in STEM skills as a pillar of its macro industrial strategy, a recent STEM skills indicator highlights that businesses across various sectors from healthcare to AI, are feeling the effects of this skills shortage.
As scale-up businesses in the education sector, Opogo and Experience Haus realise this transformation will not happen overnight – therefore we felt it was important to collaborate and bring a new programme called Teach Digital to life.
