London is the digital tech capital of Europe

London's emergence as a world leader in digital tech has been phenomenal. Its reputation for digital tech innovation and excellence is unparalleled. More than a third of Europe's tech unicorns ($1billion valued businesses) are based in the capital. However, there is a current lack of supply of highly skilled workers (see 'Growth Challenges' stats below). This is why Career Colleges have so much to offer.

What’s Next?

Google has announced plans to hire more than 3,000 staff in the UK. The planned expansion of their King’s Cross campus would leave it employing 7,000 in London by 2020, making it the biggest development outside the US. Also expanding in the capital are Apple, Amazon and Snap, which has chosen London as its international HQ. Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, has launched a £7 million scheme to support young people, especially women and minority groups, into digital tech careers. The below statistics provide a snap-shot of the impact the IT industry is having in London...and this will only continue to grow.
