Digital Skills For Our Digital Future

Explore New Zealand’s digital skills landscape with this updated analysis.  For the first time ever, data from our Digital Skills Survey has been aggregated across the entire digital skills pipeline, from school to tertiary education, from education to employment, from within the market and from immigration.  

The research found system wide challenges requiring urgent national attention – a lack of coordinated effort, dramatic skills challenges driving a heavy reliance on immigration and under investment in developing the existing workforce.     

The success of the digital technology sector is critical for New Zealand’s future.  It is one of the fastest growing parts of the New Zealand economy, generating billions of dollars in exports and creating thousands of jobs each year.  The sector is also enabling the digitalisation of the rest of the economy and underpinning this are people with digital skills.
