New interactive map for digital skills

Dumfries and Galloway College (DGC) and Borders College (BC) are providing a pathway to the future in digital skills across the South of Scotland by creating an innovative interactive map.

The map has been developed with support from the Scottish Funding Council through the South of Scotland’s Digital Pathfinder (DP). 

The DP, which has been led by both colleges, has the aim of helping the region to become more competitive by facilitating the delivery of higher-level digital skills for both businesses and individuals.

With a wealth of organisations offering digital skills training and development to businesses at a range of levels, the digital skills provision landscape can appear a complex and difficult area to navigate.

The Digital Skills Provision Map from DGC, BC and their partners makes access easy and brings everything together in one place — designed to make the future simpler for companies across the region to access digital development.

Both educational establishments, in collaboration with main partners Business Gateway Borders, Business Gateway D&G, CGI, Eco Group, SenseOn, Skills Development Scotland, South of Scotland Enterprise and Third Sector Dumfries & Galloway, were delighted to help design this go-to guide for skills provision.

The map will be updated annually to outline what digital skills learning, training and development is available from the main public, third sector and education providers in the South of Scotland.
