ICT is not optional

The skills around coding: logic, the ability to break processes into logical steps, prioritize, collaborate, be creative, take risks, debug, are universal lifelong learning skills, essential to ensure employability in the future, where knowledge of ‘how to’ is far more important than knowledge of what. In the same way that Latin and Philosophy used (rightly) to be taught to train in important thought processes, ICT is important, not only to the future coder, but also to anyone likely to end up in an industry differentiating itself from competition by enhanced service and experiences… which is pretty much any industry.
