Computing Team Targets European Skills Shortage with IT Recruitment Event


A lack of computer coding skills could see Europe facing an IT skills shortage by 2020.

There will be 900,000 unfilled computing jobs across the EU in 2015, according to the European Commission, which also warned 22% of European citizens had still never used the internet and only 51% claimed to have medium or high-level internet skills.

Glyndŵr University Wrexham is targeting these issues head-on and has organised an open afternoon with prospective students this coming Thursday from 2pm-4pm at the institution’s £5m Centre for the Creative Industries.
