digital skillsDigital Team

In 2012 the Training committee trained 66 Digital Champions, and since then there have been many digital activities around the federations. A recent survey identified gaps, or new people, in this role, and the Training Committee reviewed the support offered.  The name has been changed to Digital Team Leader who will be helped by Digital Team Mates.

The purpose of the Digital Team is to inspire, enthuse, educate and guide members to develop their digital skills. If you would like to take a role within your federation's  Digital Team please work through this short Information Module. It will help you get a better understanding of the role and responsibility of members of the Digital Team.
The Information Module covers:

- What we mean by digital skills
- The Digital Skills Initiative
- The roles in the Digital Team
- What has happened so far across some federations
- The training and support what will be available
- Making a decision about which role is best for you
- How to apply
