This joint policy briefing from Nesta and Universities UK draws on two research reports on the state of supply and demand for analytical skills in the UK to make recommendations on how to upgrade data analysis education and skills provision. The recommendations in this briefing span the whole analytical talent pipeline, including schools, colleges, universities and the labour market and industry. The recommendations aim to remedy skills shortages in the short term, while ensuring a sustainable supply of excellent analytical talent in the longer term. Additionally, the recommendations encourage cross–sector collaboration so that knowledge about how to create value from data and awareness of analytical skills shortages are not trapped in siloes, but are widely shared.
