Stand by this week for the launch of the 2020 Digital Skills Survey. We are refreshing the national digital skills survey to establish a new baseline of current digital skills in the market and identifying required skills. We will be surveying the tech sector, large corporate IT teams and Government agencies. Your help is essential, as this information will support the development of better education pathways for the talented staff needed in the tech sector. It will also inform the immigration settings and help ensure critical highly skilled digital workers can start entering New Zealand.
