Digital skills are entering all areas of work and have become essential in fields such as medicine, entertainment, communication and trade. However, they have grown in importance not only because they transform existing jobs, but also because they also give rise to entirely new ones. There is a genuine fear of a digital skills gap created by the boom in the digital economy contrasted to the number of people trained to work in it. Unemployed people are particularly at risk as their re-entrance into the labour market is largely dependent on their digital skills and their capacity to acquire them.
