We want to hear from you
Connecting Scotland is keen to find out what further support Digital Champions need to support their learners. We are aware that the initial Digital Champion training won’t cover everything you want and need to know to provide the support your learner needs.
This is your chance to tell us what you need from Connecting Scotland so we can create new resources and learning opportunities for you. You can tell us what you want by completing this short survey, which should take between 5 and 10 minutes.
