Digital Transformation is part of our Be the Future programme and as we embark on this exciting journey, which includes the move to Microsoft 365, we’re looking for volunteers to become digital champions to help support the work.
The digital champion’s role will be to help colleagues across the organisation to improve their confidence, motivation and digital skills for work. This may be helping someone get to grips with making a video call on Microsoft Teams, accessing e-learning or uploading a document to the cloud.
You may already be an informal digital champion, helping your family, friends, service users or team mates with getting to grips with digital devices and tools. This is an opportunity to formally recognise your skills and support role.
Initially the main focus for digital champions will be in supporting colleagues as they become familiar with Office 365 which will change the way we do every day work activities like sending emails, the way we communicate and accessing and sharing documents.
The roll out of Office 365 will involve introducing one new application at a time. Training for each application will be broken down into a series of readiness sessions focusing on key features. Digital champions will attend readiness sessions and in turn share training with their colleagues via Teams video call. They will be the main points of digital contact for their service area offering ongoing guidance and support.
We are aiming that each directorate will have several Digital Champions. Following the implementation of Office 365, the digital champion role will broaden to cover digital life skills and wider digital skills.
Information sessions have been added to staff diaries on Lotus Notes. If you are interested in becoming a digital champion, you can join one of the information sessions by accepting the invitation for the session that is most convenient for you to attend or through one of the links below.
You can also express your interest via the online application form.
