Not only does New Zealand have a chronic shortage of skilled digital technology professionals, we are also lacking the teachers to train those professionals. Plus, digital tech is incredibly fast moving and you learn it best on the job, so do we need to re-think how we teach tech? Can we adapt technology education to be more up-to-date, more scalable and fully equipped to meet the growing demands of our digital world?
Hear from Simon Singh on how Taranaki’s own Learner Me is tackling these challenges and be part of the conversation to ensure our region has the workforce to make it a leader in our digital future.
