The Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs acknowledges that the ICT skills gap cannot be fixed without collective action. People are encouraged to take action if they see others doing it. Over the past months we invited stakeholders to make pledges, committing to something that can address the ICT skills gap. This could be new actions, opening up existing schemes or collaborating with other stakeholders by adding new initiatives. So far we have received more than 45 pledges.

We welcome new pledges. If you wish to submit a new pledge, please complete the Grand Coalition Pledge Template and send it to

How are we doing?

The online Pledge Tracker shows the progress made in actually carrying out the individual Grand Coalition pledges.
