Information about our tool for measuring your digital skills

What you'll learn from the tool

This is a tool for measuring digital skills across a range of different areas.

You can use it on your own, or in a group or team. It will help you:

  • understand how people feel about different areas of digital
  • prioritise areas for digital skill development
  • generate discussion about the role of digital in your position or organisation.

You’ll be asked to self assess your current skill level across a wide range of areas, as well as the level of expertise you’d like to reach in the future.

Based on your answers, the tool generates a chart that gives a visual representation of your current and aspirational skill levels, like the one below.

Who should use the tool

The tool is for anyone who wants to get an overview of digital skills to help plan and prioritise development.

It can be used by everyone in an organisation, from staff at all levels, to volunteers and trustee boards.

It’s a flexible tool that can be used in lots of different ways. For example:

  • a team or department that wants to get a broad view of their digital strengths and areas for improvement
  • someone who wants to prioritise which digital skills to improve over the coming year, perhaps as part of an appraisal.

Feedback about the tool

Completing the tools as a team was valuable as it opened up discussions about different areas. It will allow us to identify knowledge gaps as well as training and knowledge share opportunities.
