UK Government 'Not Doing Enough' For Programming Education, Says Prime Minister

UK Government 'Not Doing Enough' For Programming Education, Says Prime Minister

November 11, 2011 | By Mike Rose




UK Prime Minister David Cameron has said that the British Government is currently "not doing enough to actually teach the next generation of programmers."

As part of an interview given at a Tech City event, the Prime Minister explained that comments from UK businesses had highlighted the need for people who can create new programmes.

He said that these comments were a "wake up call for our education system," and that the Government plans to act to solve the situation and introduce better computer science education.

Games and interactive entertainment trade body UKIE welcomed the Prime Minister's comments, adding its voice to the call for computer science to be added to the national curriculum.

UKIE chairman Andy Payne said, "UKIE is delighted to hear the Prime Minister acknowledge the need for more computer programmers."

"This is something UKIE has been calling for for some time, and we look forward to the Government response to the Livingstone Hope Skills Review."
