With awareness of the increasingly digital nature of the workplace and the cost on the UK of a growing digital skills gap, Good Things Foundation, Accenture and Nesta have partnered together to deliver the Future Proof: Skills for Work project that sought to engage and support individuals with limited digital skills so they may prosper in the 21st century workplace.
This report demonstrates how Good Things Foundation is working at the intersection of digital and social inclusion and how we want to better understand this aforementioned digital skills gap. We do this by working with our local and community partners, the Online Centres, and through external partnerships, to deliver projects that attempt to address this. Endeavouring to better understand the digital skills gap, last year saw us conduct a review of relevant literature relating to digital skills framework to allow understanding about their design, focus and what they may overlook. Furthermore, we extended our scope by examining associated grey and academic literature.
