Association calls for more digital literacy in German schools

January 07, 2022


Abstract : ​In view of the shortage of skilled IT workers in Germany, the country's digital association, Bitkom, is calling for better education for schoolchildren and at colleges and universities.

In view of the shortage of skilled IT workers in Germany, the country's digital association, Bitkom, is calling for better education for schoolchildren and at colleges and universities. "This is where we fundamentally need to start and increasingly teach digital skills at school and expand the relevant courses of study," said Merle Uhl, Bitkom's Artificial Intelligence & Digitalization Officer.

However, one should not only look at university education. Particularly in view of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, which also require other job profiles than those traditionally trained at universities, there are numerous opportunities to obtain qualifications in other ways - for example, through certificates.

According to Bitkom, there was recently a shortage of around 90,000 IT specialists in companies across all sectors. In a study, 65 percent of companies with 20 or more employees named the lack of skilled workers as one of the biggest hurdles to digitalization. Companies such as the Karlsruhe-based energy supplier EnBW and the technology group Bosch from Gerlingen near Stuttgart have, among other things, their own programs to qualify their employees on subjects such as artificial intelligence.
