I've been doing a bit of homework today on all things Trail Blazer Apprenticeship Frameworks - picking out specifically the opportunities to embed digital skills and where digital tools can be used in assessment, tracking and related processes.
Wales have already moved to an essential skills framework that includes digital literacy rather than IT as a core component. Based on Jisc and many otherswork around digital literacy. I like this piece on Move over ICT
In Scotland we have at the moment : Core Skills , Essential Skills , Skills for Learning Life and Work.
Perhaps it is time, with new apprenticeship frameworks on the horizon and an all employer training levy about to arrive, to do a bit of thinking in this space in Scotland too. Is it time to think Digital Literacy rather than Information Technology ?
