We are taking part in the National Digital Skills audit, supported by the Institute of Coding and The UK Tech cluster Group, and we need your help.

We’re asking businesses, freelancers, individuals and students across the UK to help us by completing the survey and by providing us with important information on the tech sector, the people working in it and the future skills demands that are emerging.  

The information gathered will provide us with important insights about the state of skills across the UK tech sector and the North East specifically. This will inform and support the work we do with education and industry, and will enable us to continue to support the ecosystem to be more progressive, inclusive and diverse.

Being part of the national survey will help us understand success stories from other UK regions, and identify opportunities and initiatives which we can bring into the North East to further strengthen the work we already do.

We want to hear from everyone currently studying or working in the digital and tech sector. The survey will take no more than 10 minutes to complete and you can access it here: https://www.surveygizmo.eu/s3/90248607/skills21ne

We also want to hear from businesses who can provide information on behalf of their companies. This will take a little longer to complete but it’s vital that we understand more about how the businesses in our region are performing, the challenges they face and the impacts of COVID-19.
