Digital skills support

Address your skills challenges and deliver stronger services

Local government faces increasing challenges. On top of limited budgets and growing service demands, there are also staffing pressures around recruitment, training and admin.

For many councils and local authorities, new tools and technologies are often beyond the budget – and sometimes create as many problems as they claim to solve.

What if you could maximise the benefits of the technology you already have, such as Teams and Microsoft 365?
