Ep 88 LIVE 088 Exploring the Digital Skills Gap Jill McKinney.

Jill's current role sees her work across the region, proactively engaging industry and education to support both parties to get what they need from each other - talk about a challenge!

With teachers being stretched to breaking point with existing curriculum demands, the need for digital skills in business in of huge importance - and not only in the tech sector.

Moving on to ensuring there is opportunity for industry to input into education whilst recognising the constraints some SMEs face with their time, there is the potential of real trouble brewing in developing and recruiting talent within the North East.
