The Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition is expecting a busy schedule in the upcoming months. This schedule will offer plenty of chances for the general public to get in contact with coalition stakeholders and coordinators and take part in activities to get new skills or bridge the digital skills gap. Getting in contact with the National coalitions help organisations reach new target groups  and coordinate their activities to ensure the digital skills gap is bridged.
