Tech Know-How: The new Way to get ahead for the next Generation

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Jan 10, 2018 | BT and Accenture Strategy

According to a report by the World Economic Forum, 65 percent of children that started school in 2016 will do jobs that have not yet been invented. Focusing on Great Britain, this study by BT and Accenture Strategy spells out the tech literacy dividend that can be created, highlighting the wage premium and GDP uplift that results from improved tech capability. Most young people have strong foundations to build on in tech know-how, and are ambitious to improve. While this will bring significant economic opportunities for young individuals, their attitudes to tech differ by background, gender and region, and employers risk reinforcing social divides through employment. While tech aptitude is evenly spread, access and opportunity differ along socio-economic, gender and regional lines.
