Roberton, Garry (2012) Tertiary ICT enrolments and job vacancies: Reflecting on trends. In: CITRENZ 2012: 3rd Annual Conference, incorporating the 25th Annual NACCQ Conference, 7-10 October, 2012, Christchurch, New Zealand.


Abstract or Summary

Tertiary enrolments in ICT diploma and degree programmes are increasing from the 2007 lows, but at a rate insufficient to meet an increasing global demand. This impending shortage of knowledge and skills, which threatens the viability of the industry, is acknowledged by both industry leaders and by governments. The ICT monthly trend series, established in September 2010 on the CITRENZ (Computing & Information Technology Research & Education NZ) website, highlights NZ ICT education and job advert trends. Brief excerpts from selected news items are also included each month. These help give some insights into the reasons for the current and impending ICT skills shortages and suggest strategies for addressing the problem. This poster features selected extracts from the monthly trend series, with commentary, over the last 12 months.
