According to sociologists, the majority of Ukrainians (61.6%) believe that the education system in Ukraine does not meet the needs of the global job market ("rather agree" - 33%, "strongly agree" - 28.6%). 

At the same time, more than a quarter of respondents (27.4%) consider the Ukrainian education system to be in line with the needs of the global job market ("rather agree" - 19.1%, "strongly agree" - 8.3%). 

These are the findings of the sociological research "Early programming as a component of modern education" carried out by Gorshenin Institute together with the Everest group of companies.

"According to Western analysts' estimates, by 2025 almost 90% of jobs in all possible professions will rely on ICT to various extent and will require at least a basic set of programming skills and interaction with information and computer technology. Even today the lack of required skills undermines the overall profile and value of any specialist in the job market, regardless of the field of activity. This problem can only be prevented \ by quality education which today, more than ever, should be up-to-date and take into account the main global trends," Yuriy Chubatyuk, president of the Everest group of companies, commented on the research results.

The sociological study "Early programming as a component of modern education" was conducted among 1,000 respondents in April-May 2019.
