Scotsman

By Danny Sullivan

ScotlandIS, the trade body for the Scottish IT sector has been in the news this week as it seeks to drive more students to take up IT-related courses at University. As the Scotsman reports, “Figures showed a 47 per cent drop in UK applications to university courses in IT between 2001 and 2006.”

ScotlandIS’s Polly Purvis said, “I think the perception is that, after the dotcom crash, there are no technology jobs left in Scotland. That is just not true. There is a massive shortage of UK students taking up places on related degree courses.”
