Today, Ukrainian IT companies lack 50–60 thousand people, and this is taking into account the rapid annual market development by 20–30 %. This means that the companies are in dire need of qualified personnel that must be trained and/or retrained if attracted from other industries. That is why for 15 years the development of IT education has been one of the key areas of work of IT Ukraine Association.

The Association implements educational projects within the Education & CSR Community, the participants of which are representatives of 63 IT companies. In the last 5 years alone, over 12 system projects have been implemented, involving more than 72 companies and 48,000 participants. Joining the efforts of key industry stakeholders is the key to the sustainable and effective development of IT education in Ukraine.
