应对数字挑战,英政府开设专门编程学校

近日,英国政府启动了一个专门机构来培训未来的编程人员,并希望借此应对日益扩大的数字技能差距问题。

据了解,这个名为Coding Institute的机构共由25个大学和60个私营企业机构联合组成。目前该机构已经获得了4000万英镑的资金,其中半数来自政府,半数由私营部门合作伙伴提供。

在这个学校里,学生将有机会学习多门编程课程,从实习项目到学位证书项目都有。

据悉,这个学校的建立其实是受到Tech Nation的一项调查影响。Tech Nation是一家由科技企业组建的网络机构,该机构的一项调查显示,英国50%的数字技术企业都面临着技能型员工短缺难题。该研究所还承诺鼓励更多的女性担任科技行业的角色,因为其行业占比仅为17%。

该研究所所长Rachid Hourizi博士说:

“我们希望普及高等教育,让更多学生、工作人员和其他潜在学习者提高技术能力,弥补数字技能不足。无论他们拥有怎样的背景,我们相信每个人都有权通过各种灵活的学习方式(比如面对面或者在线,全职或者兼职,工作或者独立活动)来提高自己的数字技能。”

The UK government has launched a new body for training prospective coders in order to address an increasing digital skills gap.

The Institute of Coding is a consortium of 25 universities and 60 private businesses. It has received £40m in funding, half of which has been supplied by the government and the other half from its private sector partners.

Students will be offered a variety of courses, from apprenticeships to degrees.

Its establishment was sparked by a survey carried out by Tech Nation, a state-sponsored networking body for tech entrepreneurs, that revealed that 50% of the UK's digital tech businesses are facing a shortage of skilled employees. The Insitute has also pledged to encourage more women to take up roles in the tech sector given that they only currently make up 17% of the industry.

“We have a clear commitment to tackling the digital skills shortfall by making it easier for students, people at work and potential learners that we have not previously reached to access higher education and improve their technical abilities," said the institute's director Dr Rachid Hourizi.

“We believe every person, whatever their background, deserves the opportunity to improve their digital skillsets through flexible learning convenient to their needs, whether that be face-to-face or online, full or part-time and as a stand-alone activity or part of an existing job."
