Digital Awareness and the use of Technology is a programme of learning courses that Southwark Council would like to offer to a range of managers, staff and external associates.
The programme comprises 10 training courses, and we are looking for a provider to deliver this entire package of learning on behalf of the council. Providers should note that whilst Southwark has previously worked with providers to deliver the Microsoft Office suite of packages, some of the courses we wish to deliver to managers and staff within this programme are new i.e. "How Can Digital Technology Improve Your Service Delivery". We are working towards modernising the way we work and deliver services, and aim to become a council which has a "digital by default" approach to services. With this in mind, we need to prepare the organisation for working in this way, by introducing training interventions that will support this transition.
The contract is for 12 months, and it is anticipated that it will commence on 1st August 2017.
