InWork Group is developing digital platforms, to address three broad education subjects which we believe are currently under served, within existing education systems.
An estimated 2 Billion people worldwide are excluded from formal banking systems partly due to lack of awareness and understanding about how best to use Financial Products.Having some Business Skills may help people earn more income and avoid unemployment.
Even in developed countries such as United States, Britain and Ireland many people fail to access the potential benefits of Financial Products because they lack sufficient information about Loans, Savings and Pensions.
InWork Group has created a digital platform to teach information about Financial Products and Business Skills, so both Students and Workers, can access information to help them better informed financial decisions at key points throughout their lifetime.
Within next 4 years by 2020, at least 50% of job vacancies in United States, which require technical skills, are forecast to go unfilled, because US Employers can not find enough people with the technical Skills. Reports by OECD, Cisco and Confederation of British Industry, estimate there is demand for 7.5 million skilled employees, but skills gap problem exists in relation to the following sectors.
a) 750,000 IT Professionals in Europe
b) 1.75 million IT Professionals in USA
c) 2 million staff to work in Big Data Sector
d) 2 million Engineers
e) 1 million Cyber Security professionals
Total 7.50 million jobs
Many Governments want students to study Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths ( STEM) subjects but there is a global shortage of teachers with skills to teach STEM Subjects.
New subjects such as CyberSecurity and Big Data are not taught in most Schools. InWork Group is developing a digital platform to teach STEM related subjects.
Cisco Systems have issued a White Paper about the “Internet of Everything” which predicts there will be 50 Billion connected devices within next 5 years, by 2020. The European Commission has introduced serious financial penalties, which could be as high as 10% of global turnover, for organisations who fail to protect user data.
Symantec, a global IT Security company , estimate that Cyber Crime costs the world economy over US$250 BILLION every year. Cisco Systems says by 2020 there will demand for 1 Million workers with Cyber Security skills.
Most students are not taught Cyber Security in School or University. Business owners may be great entrepreneurs , but often lack sufficient information to enable them understand the complex range of Cyber Security risks which could destroy their entire business.
InWork Group is developing a Cyber Security information platform to teach both Students and Workers about Data.
