Policy-forming research

The Manchester Digital Skills Audit is an annual audit of over 250 digital and technology businesses.

This important piece of research is used by businesses, policymakers and other regional and national stakeholders to understand which issues need to be prioritised and addressed as well as identifying any new or emerging trends. 

Why is the Digital Skills Audit important?

This body of research has been the catalyst behind many of the region’s industry-led endeavours to help address the skills shortage and over the last 12 months, with private and public sector support, we have significantly grown the number of programmes that we run and tripled the volume of schools, colleges and educators we have been able to support.
