Upskilling and reskilling deep dive
Let’s talk about upskilling and reskilling in the digital tech sector!
We are running online workshops for folks in the IT and education sectors to talk about:
- Existing opportunities for upskilling and reskilling in the digital technology sector
- What the gaps are, and
- How we can fill them.
This is part of our contribution to the skills workstream of the Digital Tech Industry Transformation plan, looking at the skills issues in our sector and what we can do about them. This includes addressing the mismatch of skill supply and demand through developing our domestic talent. Either by upskilling people in the sector to take on more senior and specialised roles, or reskilling folks from other industries to move into digital technology. You can read about the work here: https://itp.nz/Our-Work/Digital-Tech-Skills-Plan
There will be three workshops:
|Tuesday 22 February, 2-4pm||Digital tech sector||Link to be distributed|
|Wednesday 23 February, 2-4pm||Education sector||Link to be distributed|
|Thursday 24 February, 2-4pm||Anyone who is interested||Link to be distributed|
While the first two workshops are geared towards the digital tech and education sectors respectively, anyone is welcome to attend any of the sessions.
We will provide an introduction to the work and provide the space for you to share your ideas (and pop some sticky notes on a Jamboard).
