This guide outlines the aims and objectives of the Digital 2030 framework. It shows how digital technologies can support effective delivery, by exploring a wide range of roles and responsibilities across the post-16 sector.
Post-16 learning providers will seamlessly integrate digital technology into delivery; and encourage innovation in using inclusive, accessible and bilingual approaches to enhance the learner’s experience. Based on an awareness of the digital skills needed to support the Welsh economy, providers will equip learners and staff with the digital capabilities and confidence they will need to succeed in everyday life and in work.
The eight aims are intended to set an overall strategic direction for the post-16 sector as a whole to work towards by 2030.
Clear, nationally agreed standards for digital skills are in place to enable learners and staff to meet industry, private and public sector requirements, building on the digital competences developed during compulsory schooling.
Learning is enhanced through the use of technology, wherever it is appropriate and beneficial to the learner.
The coherence and accessibility of digital learning is increased through a range of curriculum delivery methods that are appropriate to learner and employer needs, and offer learning opportunities in both the Welsh and English languages.
A safe and secure teaching and learning experience is enabled and managed for all learners and staff through provision of appropriate virtual and physical environments.
The benefits of digital technology, and possible barriers to their achievement, are understood by all staff including senior leaders.
Continual improvement of the learner experience and business processes is supported through effective and innovative use of digital technology.
A culture of collaboration ensures that information and best practice are shared to drive effective use of digital skills to support leadership, learning and business processes.
Staff, learning and business resources are aligned to enable efficient support of the continually evolving digital requirements of post-16 education.
