Boosting tech skills can super-charge social mobility and economic growth

BT’s new report with Accenture has found that boosting the next generation’s technology skills can super-charge social mobility and economic growth – but warns that without concerted effort from business, government and civil society, the tech revolution could create a barrier for young, less-privileged people as they enter the workforce.

Tech skills - young female engineer in garageThe report reveals that individuals with higher levels of tech know-how earn more as their career progresses, with a ‘tech literacy wage premium’ of £10,000 per year. The implied salary increase from these tech-savvy individuals could add approximately £11 billion to UK GDP by 2022.

To help address the issue of poor tech literacy skills, the report makes four recommendations:

  • Make computational thinking – the building blocks of digital learning – the thread that runs through the school curriculum and teacher training.
  • Show young people – and those who influence them – the role tech plays in the things they love.
  • Ensure young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are given access to skills development and real experience of the future workplace.
  • Invest in existing employees’ skills to ensure those at most risk from automation aren’t left behind.

Giving young people the skills and confidence to thrive in the workplaces of the future, is the only way to address social mobility and secure long-term prosperity. Tackling this challenge will require the coordinated efforts of both the public and private sectors.
