Training providers and awarding organisations to ‘talk digital’ at workshops

Opportunity to share knowledge and understanding of digital skills qualifications at a series of SFA workshops.

Training providers and awarding organisations will get the opportunity to share their knowledge and understanding of digital skills qualifications at a series of workshops being held by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA).

The workshops, taking place in June, form part of a review of publicly-funded digital skills qualifications, led by the SFA.

The SFA will work with the sector to review existing qualifications and look at the future design requirements for digital skills qualifications. This will help the SFA to make sure that any new qualifications approved for public funding continue to meet the needs of employers, learners and providers.

The SFA will publish the outcome of the review later this year.

Details of the available workshops are below:

For colleges and training organisations

  • Wednesday, 3 June 10.30am to 12.30pm Coventry

For awarding organisations

  • Thursday, 4 June 10.30am to 12.30pm London
  • Tuesday, 9 June 10.30am to 12.30pm Coventry

Alongside the workshops, the SFA will be seeking views from the sector through a range of other channels, such as feconnect, surveys and through representative organisations.

The workshops are free but there are limited spaces available. If you want to attend a workshop, or get involved in the review, please contact the SFA on qualifications@sfa.bis.gov.uk.
