The Next Generation
Inspiring the next generation to reach for the clouds
Supporting & nurturing tomorrow's IT talent
iomart believes that it is vitally important to support projects that inspire young people whilst challenging them to learn about the opportunities that the digital world offers them.
Through its involvement with e-Skills and local Universities, the company has supported many events and initiatives designed to encourage pupils and students to engage with the IT industry.
Given the role that technology plays in our personal and professional lives, the benefits that it brings, and the employment potential that it offers, we should have young people battering down our doors to further their skills in this area and yet the Industry is witnessing the opposite.
At a time when UK has a high employment rate amongst our young people and when our IT industry is struggling to fill many skilled job vacancies, it is vital that employers, such as iomart, and the future talent pool is brought together.
If we fail to provide young people with the opportunity to engage with IT, we stifle their potential and condemn so many vital talents to stay hidden.
For years, we’ve focused on teaching people to be customers and consumers, rather than creators and innovators. Doing so anchors our children at the wrong end of the IT food chain, and steadily pushes jobs and our industry overseas.
It’s essential that we turn this around, encouraging young people to engage with IT, making them comfortable and confident enough to use technology whilst encouraging them to join our Industry for their chosen careers.
