There is a challenge in many schools attracting students into Digital Technologies(DT) courses. Hopefully this news item will remind parents/students of the value of studying the new DT standards. Yes they re hard, no they are not easy credits, but most things of value require effort and perseverance.

    Why would they bother. If they spent the same amount of time learning to be an electrician; plumber; accountant; lawyer or doctor – they would have industry/professional associations that looked after them. In IT you are at the mercy of the cheapest developer in the poorest part of the world.

    The issue should be – either remove the privileges and protections given other occupations; or grant them to IT. Not sure if students have figured this out, but if they have it would explain the disinterest in IT.
