star this property answer text <p>Tech Nation (formerly Tech City UK) does not directly fund tech start-ups, though they do run programmes such as Rising Stars, Upscale, and Future Fifty, that help start-ups access funding. They have published a report that highlights the state of diversity in the UK tech sector, and the need to do more especially for female founders. The report is available at https://technation.io/insights/diversity-and-inclusion-in-uk-tech-companies/</p><p> </p><p>They have also joined a consortium with Capital Enterprise, Your Startup, Your Story (YSYS) and Diversity VC, funded by JP Morgan, that aims to double the number of female and ethnic minority founders in three London boroughs by 2020.</p><p> </p><p>Meanwhile, as part of the Government’s work to increase diversity and build a Britain in which small businesses continue to thrive, Alison Rose will lead a review into barriers to female entrepreneurship, and exploring what can be done to overcome them. The review will bolster the Government’s work to make it easier for women to access the support they need to get their ideas off the ground and grow their businesses. The government will consider and respond to the findings of the review when it is published in the Spring.</p>

As the digital revolution progresses, many more jobs will require digital skills and many more tech roles will be created.

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s Digital Strategy, published in March last year, sets out the Government’s approach to tackling digital exclusion. It recognises that for the UK to be a world-leading digital economy that works for everyone, it is crucial that everyone has the digital skills they need to fully participate in society. The Government is committed to addressing the digital divide between those who have been able to embrace the digital world and those who have not.</p><p>We recently published our plans to improve adult basic digital skills by updating the national standards setting out the digital skills people need to get on in life and work and by introducing improved basic digital skills qualifications at two levels:</p><ul><li>‘beginner’ designed for adults with little or no prior experience of using digital devices or the internet</li><li>‘essential’ designed for adults with some experience of using digital devices and the internet but lacking the full range of basic digital skills needed for life and work.</li></ul><p>We will be introducing a national entitlement to basic digital skills courses from 2020, similar to the existing legal entitlements for English and Maths.</p><p>DCMS launched an innovation fund in September specifically targeting the digital inclusion of disabled and older people, with a further focus on those in rural areas, and on using digital to tackle loneliness. The aim of the fund is to help ensure that ‘what works’ on digital inclusion is identified, replicated and scaled. We have also commissioned a feasibility study to look at whether outcomes based commissioning models, including Social Impact Bonds, could be used to improve outcomes, particularly for those groups that are most likely to be digitally excluded.</p><p>Government is also tackling digital exclusion via the ‘Future Digital Inclusion’ programme funded by DfE and managed by the Good Things Foundation and delivered through the 3,000 strong Online Centres network. To date, this programme has supported over 800,000 adult learners to develop their basic digital skills, many of whom are socially excluded. Further, the NHS Digital ‘Widening Digital Participation’ programme develops projects that enable people in England to improve their digital health skills and to increase their access to digital services and tools that support their health and care.</p>
