How Veterans Are Plugging Tech Skills GapApril 10, 2018 |

The tech skills shortage has got so bad that tech companies have decided to call in the troops.
In March, Experis and Amazon teamed up to teach software development to military personnel and their spouses through its re:Start programme, while the non-profit TechVets launched a cyber skills training scheme for military veterans.
The idea is to address two employment issues in one scheme, by filling the well-documented UK digital skills gap with the underutilised talents of former military personnel.
