Skills Development

As Mobile, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence become more prominent and disruptive in our councils, new skills and ways of working will be required throughout our workforce. These changes will require staff to be retrained in order to help with frontline services where skills will be needed most.


Our Skills Development programme will look towards the future, anticipating skills requirements for the coming years - identifying potential skills gaps and the creation of training to match future needs. Digital Champions will be nurtured, acting as advocates for digital development across Local Government and helping to create and develop training programmes and best practice - working towards the establishment of a National Digital Academy.
