The UK could struggle to fill jobs of the future, which could include metaverse engineers, AI sports coaches and tech fashion designers, if computer science and artificial intelligence skills aren’t taught in schools, research suggests.
According to a YouGov survey commissioned by Amazon, 72% of secondary school teachers are in favour of making an active effort to boost education around AI and computer science.
Without it, 75% say they fear a long-term skill gap. However, 64% of STEM teachers said they had limited access to computer science resources – and this figure rose to 79% when focused on AI.
