DIGITAL SKILLS PARTNERSHIP

Digital Skills Partnership Cheshire and Warrington 

In 2019 the Cheshire and Warrington Local Digital Skills Partnership launched.

What is the Digital Skills Partnership?

The Digital Skills Partnership is a group of employers and other organisation who recognise the growing importance of digital skills to all the businesses and residents of Cheshire and Warrington. The Partnership will work together with businesses and training providers to develop the skills of the current and future workforces so businesses can fully utilise new digital technologies.

What is it for?

The Digital Skills Partnership will ensure that we focus on digital skills as we deliver the two priorities of our skills and education action plan:

  • Businesses being at the heart of inspiring and informing young people about new technologies and career opportunities so they make informed decisions about the training and education that they choose; and
  • Businesses working together with training providers to improve the quality of training available to employees and individual learners who want to acquire the digital skills they need for work or to function in an increasingly digital age.

How does it help me?

The Digital Skills Partnership will work together with businesses and training providers to develop the skills of the current and future workforces to enable them to take full advantage of new digital technologies. It will also help residents and employees across Cheshire and Warrington to acquire the digital skills they need to live in an increasingly digital economy and move into work or to progress in work.
