Not Just Digital Skills

In a world where digital is slowly but surely taking over, it is clear that we need to invest in a workforce that is knowledgeable and equipped to cope in such a technological society, however as former GCHQ head, Robert Hannigan put “Digital is undoubtedly a huge part of our future, but we can’t lose sight of other valuable skills”.

The key is a balance of skills that only humans can possess our creativity, problem-solving, teamwork, communication and decision-making, combined with the speed and accuracy of robotic and digital systems.

Robert Hannigan also said “Parents need to encourage children to develop both technical and non-technical skills – only as balanced, well-rounded adults they will be able to lead a happy life and contribute to the country’s prosperity”
