The tool will,
- be an interactive online digital diagnostic tool that provides people with opportunities to answer a set of questions to determine their current digital literacy levels and help identify areas of learning need.
- provide senior managers and leaders with anonymised data to help them understand the digital literacy skills and training needs of their staff.
Once a person has completed the self-assessment questionnaire, they will be intelligently directed to learning resources to help them to develop their skills in specific areas.
When will it be available?
We are keen to develop a product that is fully tested and fit for purpose for all users, managers, and system leaders. The digital skills self-assessment diagnostic tool is currently in public Beta phase and is being tested internally by HEE colleagues and some selected Digital Learning Solution (DLS) centres.
The phased public Beta testing will carry on, with wider rollout to the health and social care workforce taking place by summer 2021.
For further information, or to register your organisation’s interest in taking part in the public Beta test, please don’t hesitate to contact us through our team mailbox firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust launched Health Education England’s Digital Literacy Self-Assessment Tool on 18th January 2021 and Kerry Rodger – Digital Training Manager at the Trust – talks to us about how it’s going on the ground and offers some words of wisdom for the organisations soon to follow in Kettering’s footsteps when the tool is rolled out nationally.
