The number of IT jobs available are increasing but reports show that the number of graduates with qualifications in IT are not increasing at the same speed.
The number of IT jobs advertised each month has risen from 19,000 in 2011 to more than 23,000 in 2012. While there are still many graduates with qualifications in IT, there are not enough indicating that career development is required once university leavers enter the workplace.
There was a 10% increase in enrollments on computer science courses between 2011 and 2012. However the number of IT jobs increased by 21% over the same period.
