Our Delivery

Projects Map

The government is working with Local Enterprise Partnerships and Combined Authorities (CAs) to help establish Local Digital Skills Partnerships (Local DSPs) across the country to tackle local digital skills challenges and build thriving and inclusive local economies.

In 2018, 3 Local DSPs were set up in Lancashire, Heart of the South West and the West Midlands. DCMS invited all other Local Enterprise Partnerships and Mayoral Combined Authorities to submit Expressions of Interest to form a Local DSP pilot. A further 3 regions were selected, including the South East.

Trailblazers

The 6 Local Digital Skills Partnership trailblazers have been allocated funding to employ a Regional Coordinator to coordinate the delivery of digital skills in their respective Local DSPs. By working collaboratively with both regional and national stakeholders, they will be developing new innovative models to improve digital skills across their regions, boost their local economies and share this best practice with other LEPs and Combined Authorities. To keep up to date about DSP’s across the country, take a look at the DSP blog

We’ll be regularly updating stakeholders across Kent, Essex and East Sussex about progress, sharing information about offers from regional and national DSP partners to help improve residents’ digital skills and inviting support from partners and individuals.
