Webinar Q&A: 2:30pm – 3pm
Digital Jersey and Geek Talent interviewed over 60 industry, education, and government representatives across 40 sessions as part of their data gathering exercise. From these discussions, the study concluded there was a need to embed digital skills across the school curriculum; that businesses lacked the confidence and expertise to adopt and implement technologies ; and that a lack of quality and affordable housing for newly arrived islanders – across a range of sectors from agriculture and hospitality to financial services and digital – was a barrier to attracting talent to the island.
