Belfast IT company Wholeschool Software has launched a new initiative with St Patrick's Grammar in Downpatrick to help solve the digital skills gap.

Wholeschool has chosen St Patrick's to be its European flagship school as it forms a new partnership with US IT online training company Pluralsight. The pupils will now be able to use Pluralsight's worldwide online platform of more than 5,000 professional courses.

Wholeschool founder Frank McGonagle said young people will need an understanding of coding and technology no matter what career they seek.
