A recent KPMG study found that the technology skills shortage is at its highest level since 2008. With many businesses investing billions into retraining programs, few are addressing the deeper pipeline problem of preparing students for these in-demand digital jobs. Today’s students need hands-on, practical instruction that they can immediately apply to their careers.
