The government is working with Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and Combined Authorities (CAs) to help establish Local Digital Skills Partnerships (Local DSPs) across England to tackle local digital skills challenges and build thriving and inclusive regional economies.

There are 8 Local DSPs in:

You can read an evaluation of the first 6 Local DSPs which found them to have had positive outcomes for local people and communities, local businesses and public sector partners.

Local DSP Regional Coordinators

The 8 Local DSPs are allocated funding to employ a Regional Coordinator to facilitate the delivery of digital skills training opportunities in their respective Local DSPs. By working collaboratively with both regional and national stakeholders, they will be developing new innovative models to improve digital skills across their regions, boost their local economies and share this best practice with other LEPs and CAs. Regional Coordinators also have regular contact with DCMS.


Find out more about how you can join your Local DSP network by contacting their regional coordinator:
