Scottish government launches new digital strategy and reveals plans to boost number of digital jobs
The Scottish government has outlined its plans to realise that country’s full potential in the Digital World with the creation of thousands of new jobs associated with the digital industries.
The ambitious intention by the Scottish government is to create 150,000 digital jobs in the next four years (2021), in an effort to place digital at the “heart of everything it does”.
The Scottish Government says that it hopes to create 150,000 digital jobs by effectively creating the right conditions for this to happen.
To this end, it will ensure that every premise in Scotland is able to access broadband speeds of at least 30Mbps by 2021.
It also plans a new digital schools programme, as well as a new round of funding for community digital inclusion projects and an expansion of Scotland’s Digital Participation Charter.
