Using technology to deliver council services
Improving digital skills
To improve digital skills in the area, Wigan Council has become a pioneer council for the Duke of York’s Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award. The scheme allows users to choose topics they are interested in, such as online safety and animation, and gives families the option to learn digital skills together. Over 1,500 people have achieved the Digital Wigan Badge, 17,000 have won iDEA badges, 335 have achieved the Bronze Award and 17 people have already achieved the Silver Award.
