BECOME A DIGITAL CHAMPION WITH NEW TRAINING PROGRAMME
The Digital Office for Scottish Local Government in partnership with the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations are delighted to now be inviting Councils to participate in a 12 month Digital Champions Training Programme.
Scottish Council Voluntary Organisation (SCVO) works closely with COSLA and the Digital Office for Scottish Local Government to help Local Authorities define their commitments under the Digital Participation Charter and to benchmark the Essential Digital Skills of their staff and wider communities.
This work has developed a much clearer picture of the activities taking place in Local Authorities across Scotland, and the need for more skills support. A number of Local Authorities have expressed interest in engaging with SCVO to access Digital Champion training, in order to upskill frontline staff and respond to the emerging needs of their residents.
The Digital Skills Heartbeat Pack provides details on the brand new training programme and how our colleagues across Scottish Local Government can get involved.
