And how can you equip your students with the right digital skills to ensure that they enter the workplace with a competitive advantage?

As an expert edtech consultancy we are proud to work with schools across the UK to help students and teachers with their digital strategies and tools.

So, here’s 7 of the skills employers are seeking from young people entering the workplace in 2024 and how edtech can help you address them:

1. Data Literacy: Crunching numbers isn’t just for mathematicians anymore! Employers actively seek candidates who can analyse data to derive insights and make informed decisions. So data skills will help individuals to stand out in today’s data-driven world.

2. Coding Proficiency: Whether it’s building websites, developing apps, or automating processes, coding is the backbone of modern technology. Equipping pupils with the coding skills to unlock endless possibilities will help them complete in the digital race.

3. Digital Marketing: In a crowded online marketplace, digital marketing skills can be a game-changer. From social media management to SEO wizardry, mastering digital marketing tactics can help boost brand visibility and drive business growth making them a valuable company asset.

4. Cybersecurity Awareness: Cybersecurity has become a top priority for organisations across industries. Learning pupils how to stay vigilant and learn cybersecurity ropes to protect sensitive data and safeguard digital assets will give them another edge.

5. Adaptability & Tech Agility: In today’s fast-paced tech landscape, the only constant is change. Employers value candidates who are adaptable and quick to embrace new technologies to help their companies stay relevant in an ever-evolving digital world.

6. Collaborative Tools Proficiency: Remote work and virtual collaboration have become the new norm. Familiarising pupils with collaborative tools like Google Workspace will allow them to collaborate seamlessly and efficiently with teams across the globe.

7. Critical Thinking & Problem-Solving: Technology may be powerful, but it’s nothing without human ingenuity. Sharpen your pupils’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills to tackle complex challenges and drive innovation in the digital age.
