Shortly after every Westminster eForum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our contacts in government, and stakeholders more widely.
A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
Each publication includes:
- All speeches from the day, with accompanying slides and speaker biographies
(subject to approval by speaker);
- Transcripts of question and comment sessions;
- Supplementary articles from speakers and delegates; and
- Event information such as the delegate list and final agenda
Skills for the UK Digital Economy - delivering the IT professionals of the future
PUBLISHED February 2011
This seminar examined the options available to attract more people into careers in IT and to alleviate the UK's IT skills shortage. The event looked at issues emanating from the Sector Skills Review conducted for the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills. Sessions focused on the teaching of IT in universities, schools and colleges and whether the image of an IT career is appealing to those choosing their professional future. The event also looked at the needs of specific professions such as the video games and visual effects industry as well as the dangers of a lack of skilled IT professionals for the UK's economic competitiveness.
