ABSTRACT
Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown launched a host of measures designed to increase basic IT know-how in April 2003's Budget, but did little to help high-end IT skills shortage. Apart from moves to relax entry restrictions for immigrants with sought-after skills, the Budget concentrated on initiatives designed to raise basic skills standards. “Government remains too focused on qualifications, but all firms work differently and have different skills needs,” says Victoria Gill, learning, training and development advisor at the CIPD.
