Digital Skills – Effective use of ICTs in life and for work requires adequate skills OECD says

Effective use of ICTs in life and for work requires more specialist and generic skills in ICTs complemented by better foundational skills.

“IT staff” ranks second among the top ten jobs that employers have difficulties filling, notably in services, although shortages of ICT specialist skills seem limited to only a few countries, at least in Europe. Meanwhile, generic ICT skills are insufficient among many workers using ICTs every day, as are ICT foundational skills, such as problem solving and communication, which are increasingly necessary to adapt to changing jobs. A few countries are implementing programmes to match current ICT training priorities with expected skills needs, but only few have adopted a comprehensive ICT skills strategy to date.
