Digital Skills Audit

The next Digital Skills Audit will be revealed in February 2023.

The audit provides us with important information that helps us to better understand the digital and tech sector, the people working in it, and the future skills demands that are emerging.

The survey for the 2023 Audit is now closed, and the results will be revealed at the Digital Skills Festival on Monday 6th February 2023.

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.
