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.

partners such as SCVO to develop “train-the-trainer” training for Digital
Champions who can help to support staff within councils (and Health and Social
Care Partnerships) with essential digital skills;
- Lead with SPDS and Scottish
Government Digital Academy to adopt the UK Government “Digital, Data, and
Technology (DDaT)” Capability Framework as a way of workforce planning
technical and transformation roles within councils (and Health and Social Care
Partnerships) and across the sector (including role profiling and training and
- Lead with COSLA, SPDS and
SOLACE to influence decision-making of workforce planning by undertaking
research into the future of work within local government and Health and Social
We already have a well-established community of
stakeholders and would encourage anyone who would like to get involved or find
out more to get in touch.
To assist in the understanding of the needs and
requirements of the various aspects of this project, we will create a
'Marketing Pack' which will be published in early 2020.
Once you have read through this pack, we would
encourage anyone wanting to get involved to complete our registration form and the team will be in
touch to begin this collaboration.
