The IT sector is expanding at a fantastic rate and at 16%, the level of employment growth for the 2003-13 period was almost three times that recorded for the UK workforce as a whole (6%). E-skills UK have identified that around 130,000 new positions will need to be filled by 2015,and out of these around 22,000 will be from people leaving education. The most alarming concern with regards to these figures is that the amount of female representation in the IT sector is, as it has been for the last ten years , on the decline. Latest estimates from the ONS (Office for National Statistics) shows that there were176,000 women working as IT specialists in the UK during 2013 - just under one in six (16%) of all those working in such roles at that time (1,129,000 people in total).
