Digital Skills Enhancement Programme:
Digital literacy is now as important as maths and English as employers demand digital skills in a world where they are an essential part of everyday working life. A range of recent government reports acknowledged a potential digital skills gap, addressed in part by the inclusion of digital literacy in the new apprenticeship standards and the proposed technical and vocational reforms.
These changes will mean that the education workforce will need the skills to embed digital literacy into the curriculum. Research undertaken by the ETF across 40 organisations showed that 70% of respondents felt their digital literacy skills were insufficient, but practitioners wanted to change this.
In response to these findings, the ETF has developed a range of digital skills development courses. For example, the ‘Digital tools for assessment’ course is aimed at teachers, trainers and assessors in the learning and skills sector who would like to integrate technology supported assessment into their delivery strategies.
Each course is designed to help practitioners build their digital skills and confidence in using them effectively in teaching and learning. SET members can also benefit from a free online self-assessment tool and introductory modules on improving and applying their digital skills.

Please note: Only one course place is available per person.
