Supporting Citizen Advice services in Liverpool City

The Advice Skills Academy (ASA) has joined our Digital Champions Network to help their partner organisations’ staff and volunteers develop their digital skills.

The ASA is a European Social Fund funded project which aims to address higher level skills shortages in specialist advice services and provide opportunities to improve workforce skills, knowledge, progression and productivity.

Joining the Digital Champions Network as part of the Lottery funded One Digital programme enables the ASA to offer quality assured training and support for 50 digital skills mentors from local Citizens Advice and other partner organisations in the Liverpool City region.

Liz Reed, Advice Skills Academy Project Manager said: “Our partners are really excited about becoming part of the Digital Champions Network. It means we can provide staff and volunteers with the tools and structure they need to develop their roles as digital enablers in their workforces.”
