CLD Digital Competence Review – share your views!
CLD Standards Council Scotland’s (CLDSC) online survey aimed at gathering your views on how best to ensure that digital skills, knowledge and competence is embedded and visible across the Competent Practitioner Framework is now open.
This is one of the priorities highlighted by Jamie Hepburn, Minister for Higher Education and Further Education, Youth Employment and Training, in the CLD Digital Investment funding announcement made in December 2021. The CLDSC was asked to:
- Develop national guidance that sets out clear principles for digital delivery, and how to support improved infrastructure for digital approaches.
- Develop a set of digital competences for CLD mapped within the CLDSC’s Competence Framework
A series of focus groups were held in March and based on feedback from those, CLD practitioners in all settings, including adult learning, community development and youth work, are invited to participate in an online survey. The survey aims to find out how you currently use digital or how you’d like to use it, as well as what support CLDSC can offer to help implement digital into your practice.
You don’t have to be a member of CLDSC to complete the survey, so please tell your colleagues and networks. And you don’t need to have much of a digital focus in your role either – we want to hear from everyone!
The CLD Digital Competence Survey should take around 10-20 mins to complete and will be open until Friday 27 May 2022.
