What we are doing

We are working to improve the digital skills training provision to offer a diverse set of learning opportunities to provide you with the digital communications knowledge you need.

We currently provide a number of online materials in the Web Guide, including CMS how to guides, top tips and web skills articles, alongside this we also provide in person training courses, for example, Introduction to T4 Site Manager and Writing for the web.

We want to add further topics and training activities that you would like to be made available to you. You can let us know what training topics and activities are important to you by completing this five minute survey.

As part of the project we will be undertaking an audit of the Web Guide to ensure that you can find these new training materials easily and logically. If you would like to let us know what you think of the current Web Guide please complete the Web Guide Feedback form.
