90% of European jobs require ICT skills, and yet there will be 900’000 unfilled ICT positions in the EU by 2020.
Less than 15% of European students have access in school to high-level ICT teaching. In some EU Member States, such as Greece and Croatia, fewer than half of pupils even have access to the internet at school.
Even when students have access to the right technology, there is no guarantee that they will be taught properly how to use it. In most EU countries, fewer than 30% of children aged 10-15 are taught by “digitally confident” teachers. One in four teachers in OECD countries say they do not have enough ICT training.
