Young people need education in IT career options

As this month’s IT-related GCSE and A-level student numbers fell for another year, the common viewpoint emerging from the IT industry is that young people simply don’t know what they’re missing in the IT sector.

As IBM’s HR vice president told Computer Weekly, a lack of suitable candidates meant 200 out of a 1000 jobs created for young people were left unfilled.

Matthew Poyiadgi, european vice president of CompTIA, believes this is because young people are simply not aware of the career options available to them in the IT sector. 

Oracle believes the skills shortage places greater emphasis on employers to attract and retain young employees.
