Digital Capabilities Development and Recognition Pathways

We are currently in the process of developing a series of pathways for colleagues which brings together development and recognition opportunities based on the area of the University you work in. This provides a meaningful path for you to follow to develop your digital skills in line with the digital literacy framework, and ultimately gain professional recognition through a variety of accreditations. More information about these pathways will be available on this website soon.
