Skills Development

The Digital Skills project looks to identify where councils can work together to share experiences of workforce planning, skills gap analysis, the move to using job families and adopting competencies.


A number of digital champion programmes exist across the Partnership and we will look at how they are progressing and we will work with Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations to embed a standard approach to defining essential skills.


As demand for traditional classroom learning changes, we will examine the best approach to learning in this 24/7 world we live in.


A digital skills playbook will signpost staff to existing resources and case studies. We are reviewing the Digital Data and Technology profession which is being embedded in Scottish Government to see how this might apply to Local Government. The project will identify what future roles we will need and will evaluate potential models to deliver this capability.

All deliverables from this project can be found on our Knowledge Hub


We are currently working on the second phase of the Digital Partnership projects which will be published in October 2019 and relevant information will be published in due course.
