Technology and Analytics at Kaplan

Digital transformation is changing the way that organisations do business, no matter what their size or sector. It has created and accelerated a significant gap in the skills needed to succeed in the digital world, challenging organisations to upskill and retrain existing staff, and for those looking to get ahead in their careers, to prepare for a technology based future.

Essential skills and training for all

Many organisations are rapidly embracing the significant advancements in digital technology, such as automation, data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI), to change the way they do business, and to drive improvements in efficiency and overall performance.

Many job roles, and the skills needed to perform them, are changing. Whether existing roles are evolving or new specialist roles are created, the current and future workforce needs access to new digital skills through education and retraining that’s developed in conjunction with the needs of the business.

What the future holds

By 2025, new jobs will emerge and others will be displaced by a shift in the division of labour between humans and machines. According to the Future of Jobs Report 2020 by the World Economic Forum, there will be a growing demand for digital specialists, data analysts, automation specialists and those involved in AI and the Internet of Things, to name just a few.

Sadly there will be less demand for admin and data entry roles, accountants, bookkeepers, factory workers - essentially any role that could be automated.

And it’s not just for the specialists. Digital skills are essential entry requirements for two-thirds of UK Standard Occupation Classification (SOC) roles which account for 82%* of online job vacancies.
