FutureDotNow brings together organisations to motivate people and businesses to boost their digital skills to thrive in a digital UK.

FutureDotNow is a call to action

The way we live and work is changing. While the UK is a world leader in digital, the speed of change is leaving many of our people behind. There is a growing skills gap. And it’s not just those people with little or no skills – we all need to boost our digital skills for the future, whatever level we are at today.

The risk is looking for it in the wrong place – more training sounds appealing, but in truth there’s no lack of training out there. What holds us back is a motivation gap and a lack of understanding of what’s really needed.

That’s why FutureDotNow is bringing together organisations to motivate people and businesses across the UK to boost their digital skills. We need hundreds of organisations to get involved and drive change with us. Our vision is to empower everyone to thrive in a digital UK, by helping people to understand the digital skills they need for life and work, inspiring them to invest time in the tech they need, and then supporting people by signposting the training they will need to match their own ambitions.

It’s a call to action to business, government, charities and education providers – pledge your support and join us today.
