What we do


How we make sure the UK has the IT skills it needs to succeed

Technology holds the key to innovation, global competitiveness and sustainable economic growth: our mission is to make sure Britain has the IT skills it needs to make these things happen.

We do this by taking our lead from employers and working with government, IT professionals and IT training providers to tackle skills needs and support economic recovery.

Please note that the work of e-skills UK is being taken forward by the Tech Partnership. Work is under way and further information will be available by the end of the year 2014.
