Lloyds Banking Group to help boost digital skills

Lloyds Banking Group has announced it will be helping to boost digital skills across the UK to enable adults to have easier access to work and education.

The bank has teamed up with The Tech Partnership to lead a consultation that aims to improve the way Basic Digital Skills are measured.

Benefits

The initiative will help adults explore the benefits of being online. Research from the Lloyds Bank Consumer Digital Index shows having basic digital skills could help people save £744 per year on average in addition to helping them thrive in a digital world.

Lloyds Banking Group and The Tech Partnership are inviting people to participate in a survey and share their views on what digital skills they believe are needed today and in the future.

The aim of the consultation is to refine and update the Go ON UK Basic Digital Skills framework, with the development of the framework being overseen by a steering group brought together by Lloyds and The Tech Partnership. The group consists of a wide variety of organisations such as industry experts, training providers, and government officials.

Formidable

Commenting on the consultation, The Tech Partnership Chief Executive Karen Price OBE said that they are excited to be co-chairing the consultation process.

She added that they have convened a formidable leadership group of employers, training providers, government officials and industry experts to develop and review the framework and to ensure that everyone in the UK can safely take part in and contribute to the digital world of today and the future, at home and at work.
