The education system is failing to provide young people with the digital skills they need to succeed in the world of work, according to 18 to 30-year-olds. Capture d’écran 2014-04-24 à 13.25.04

The research, compiled by Tata Consultancy Services and ThinkYoung, found 63% of the 500 young people surveyed in 28 EU countries don’t believe education prepared them for the digital demands of work.

In addition, 70% said they would need to acquire further digital skills post-education.

Andrea Gerosa, founder and board member at ThinkYoung, told HR magazine the issue meant that the job market was “wasting time it doesn’t have” training young people.

He added the problem affects both employers and young people. “We know that many C-suite leaders are worried about the skills shortage this is creating,” he said. “But most of all this is a problem for the young people looking for work. It’s very frustrating when they turn up for work without the tools to do the job.”
