The UK technology sector has a talent shortage which could “stifle growth”, an industry body has warned. Liz Scott, from TechNation, said it was “a real issue” which must be rectified. There were more than two million UK job vacancies in tech last year, more than any other labour area, but an industry coalition says nearly 12 million workers lack essential digital skills. The government told the BBC it was working very closely with industry on digital skills training. However, schemes like boot camps, apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships do not seem to be enough to address the gap. More information: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-62098767
