London Tech Week Awards
At London Tech Week we have spent nearly a decade of connecting and celebrating the leaders in tech across the UK, and our Awards will celebrate the pioneering individuals and companies shaping technology and using it to accelerate positive change across the whole of the UK.
Winner | Outstanding Contribution to Digital Skills
Organisations are calling out a skills gap as digital transformation is creating millions of jobs that require new skills. IBM estimates that globally 120 million people will require up or re-skilling by the end of 2022. At the same time, many young people are leaving education not equipped for competitive careers in this new digital economy. By forming partnerships like P-TECH, bringing schools, employers and HE institutions together, IBM believes we can give under-served young people a head start. P-TECH launched in 2011 in the US and 2019 in the UK and Ireland. The 4-yr programme inspires 14-18yr old students with mentors, hands-on learning, work experience & HE learning. Globally P-TECH reaches 8K students & 250 schools, with 6 schools and 550+ students in UKI and more coming. IBM P-TECH helps employers plug skills gaps and supports young people to be more work ready for jobs of the future.
