BCS launches IT literacy campaign

John Kavanagh
A £1m campaign to raise public awareness of IT skills and the importance of IT qualifications has been launched by the BCS and the Northwest Development Agency.

The campaign will promote the European computer driving licence qualification to employees, people returning to work and young adults preparing for work. Companies in the region will also be targeted.

Steven Broomhead, chief executive of the Northwest Development Agency, said, "This is an important campaign to raise the level of IT literacy. We hope it will help in decreasing the skills gap and qualify the workforce with a set of skills that can potentially increase opportunities and inward investment."
