Good Things launches local digital skills Playbook
Charity collaborates with Tech Nation and DCMS in campaign to encourage local initiatives on fostering skills development
Social change charity Good Things Foundation has launched a Playbook to help local organisations build partnerships to support help people in their communities to gain digital skills.
It has developed the Playbook with entrepreneurs’ network Tech Nation and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) as a source of best practice in the field.
Good Things and Tech Nation are now calling on any individuals and groups interested in digital skills to take part in the Playbook’s further development as an open resource.
They are also going to work with DCMS on promoting examples to local authorities and local enterprise partnerships, with the aim of boosting digital skills activity at a local level.
Helen Milner OBE (pictured), chief executive of Good Things Foundation, said: “Our aim is for the Playbook to be a call to action, a framework to guide set-up, and a source to find best practice. As well as setting out why local partners should work together on digital skills, it sets out what actions partners can take to have an impact.
“When it’s complete, the Playbook will be a valuable resource that will help organisations to build local partnerships and support people of all ages and levels of digital skills to become an integrated part of our increasingly digital world.”
