Improving digital skills


Wigan Council

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.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
