Digital Skills Project

We want to know how we can improve digital skills in our area. 

From June - October 2019, we were funded to investigate the provision of digital skills in our local area and make clear recommendations for action.

As a society, we have been moving online at an alarming rate. In many respects, this is fantastic for connectivity, bringing people together and making services easier to access. On the other hand, the digital revolution is still leaving many people behind - often society's most vulnerable. 

Our vision is to live in a community where digital is second-nature to our older people, the ambition of our younger people and the natural marketplace for our small businesses. We want to equip people with the skills they need to increase their confidence, build new opportunities and support our community to grow and develop.

The project will have three key streams of work:

1. Essential digital skills for people in our community will be strengthened 

2. Young people will have more and better access to digital career pathways

3. Our small businesses will be able to use digital to boost their presence and opportunities
