The Scottish Digital Academy Monitoring Report summarises our key activities and progress since 2017, with a specific focus on our delivery during the Covid-19 pandemic. This is the first time that we’ve published such a report. As we continue to build digital capability as a key priority for the Scottish Government, we’ve established the Scottish Digital Academy as a leader in digital skills professional learning in the public and third sectors in Scotland.
About the report
Monitoring is an important part of the planning process and plays a critical role in identifying continuous improvement.
In writing our report, we have used qualitative and quantitative data to illustrate our value and impact. For example, we have seen an increase in the number of courses provided during the pandemic, with a record number of people and organisations engaging with us through both a universal and targeted approach. This has started to lead to improved digital services across the public sector.
We will continue to build upon the work of the Scottish Digital Academy to establish it as the skills provider of choice for the Scottish public sector. This will continue to accelerate the delivery of digital skills that we need both now and in the future, building stronger professional communities to share best practice and develop leadership capability. In becoming the digital skills provider of choice, the Scottish Digital Academy will deliver and facilitate high quality professional learning and training, with a specific focus on transformation and digital skills, whilst promoting the principles of a digital nation.

Expanding our reach, our breadth and depth of courses, and our partnerships, has also seen us develop a leading reputation across public sector bodies in the UK and beyond.
