David Cameron says:

“The UK is one of the fastest growing digital economies in the G20 and we must embrace new models of education like the Digital Business Academy to upskill our national capabilities and provide people with the tools they need to participate and thrive in the new economy. Building on our initiative to put coding into the school curriculum, Digital Business Academy provides the commercial know-how needed to turn the UK into a nation of business builders, with an equipped workforce for the 21st century.”
