Scotland's Digital Technologies Sector: Employer Skills Survey 2019

Skills Development Scotland on behalf of the Digital Technologies Skills Group, are undertaking an analysis of the Digital Technologies sector in Scotland.  This sector is important to Scotland as it plays an underpinning role in driving the competitiveness of Scotland’s other growth sectors as well as being a significant employer in its own right.  It is critical that we understand and can support the current and future skills needs of digital technology employers.

As part of this, an employer skills survey is being conducted which will assess the current and likely future skills needs and issues in the digital technologies workforce.  Ultimately, the research will deliver a strong and robust evidence base with which to inform skills investment planning for the digital technology sector and other sectors with a growing need for digital skills.

If you manage a digital technology business or business which has need of employees with digital technology skills, please complete our survey; tell us about your skills issues and recruitment needs and challenges.

Please note, the survey focuses only on the employer's professional Digital Technology workforce (such as software development, data analysis and systems integration), and does not relate to the wider workforce's ICT or digital literacy, such as the use of Microsoft Office for daily tasks.
