Erika Kispeter was invited to present research on workforce digital skills to the All- Party Parliamentary Group on Digital Skills on 26th April. The virtual meeting focused on the topic of ‘Digital skills and work: The role of national government’.

Drawing from the evidence review on current and future digital skills needs of the UK economy she had conducted with Sally-Anne Barnes, as well as from other relevant projects, in particular, Beyond 4.0, and One by One, Erika spoke to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Digital Skills on Tuesday about the challenges public policy makers face and the need for a design framework when planning public policy for digital skills provision.

Erika presented alongside Paul Geddes, Chief Executive, QA, and Dr Kira Allmann, Public Engagement Researcher, Ada Lovelace Institute.

The purpose of the All Party Parliamentary Group is to provide a forum for parliamentarians, educators and employers to promote the importance of digital skills and to encourage a greater understanding of digital skills for personal, educational and career development.

The video recording of the meeting is available on YouTube.
