National Coding Week started just a few years ago in September 2014 but the event has since gone global, with digital organisations like us sharing their expertise and passion with others to address the current digital skills shortage.
The Government Digital Inclusion Strategy disclosed that 21% of the British population do not recognise the benefits of the digital world because they are lacking basic digital skills. This is equivalent to 11 million people.
Even more of surprise, up to 50% of SME’s do not even have a website and those that do have minimal functionality. However SME’s who are connected online report cost-savings, time-savings and an increased turnover. Plus, there is a greater opportunity for business growth.
We are committed to the belief that digital skills improve innovation and profitability but we also recognise that many people do not have access or knowledge to tech so we have been busting some jargon for you, so that you can understand some of the most commonly used digital acronyms out there and why the technology might be great for your business.
