Jisc is a key delivery partner for the Digital 2030: strategic framework.

In December 2022 the Welsh Government issued a call to action to the post-16 sector outlining the next steps in the Digital 2030 strategic framework for 2022–2025.

To support this, Jisc is hosting a webinar on 26 January for education leaders and learning providers across Wales to highlight the resources available to those developing Digital 2030 strategies for their organisations.

The Digital 2030 strategic framework is designed to provide today’s learners with the digital skills and experiences needed by the future workforce.

Digital 2030 is based on eight nationally agreed aims to enable learners and staff to meet industry, private and public sector requirements; they are:

Head of Jisc Wales, Alyson Nicholson said:

“To align with the Welsh Government’s aim of ensuring students possess the digital skills to support the economy in Wales, Jisc is committed to helping tertiary education leaders and learning providers develop their digital strategies.

“We have already worked with the post-16 education sector in Wales, through the use of our digital experience insights tool, to benchmark progress against Digital 2030.

“The next step is using these outputs to create strategies that support the individual needs of each institution.

“We look forward to welcoming them to the upcoming Jisc webinar, where our advice and guidance experts will provide information on Jisc resources and services, such as the digital elevation tool.”

Marian Jebb, head of post-16 quality at the Welsh Government, said:

“We have asked FE institutions to consider how they can develop a more strategic and sustainable approach to digital learning, building on the experience of the Covid-19 pandemic and tailored to their local priorities.

“Over the next six months, institutions will be preparing individual digital strategic plans, which will unlock capital investment of at least £8m over a three-year period.

“We are keen to ensure institutions use all the support and resources available to develop their strategic plans.

“I’d encourage all institutions to engage with Jisc, our Digital 2030 delivery partners, to help them meet the objectives set out in the minister for education and Welsh language’s call to action.”
