About the Staff Digital Skills Framework

Our Staff Digital Skills for Working Practices Framework sets out the essential skills that will enable all staff at the University of York to make the best use of the IT tools and applications available. 

The skill set has been designed to be as broad as possible and applicable to all staff who make use of IT systems, applications and devices, at every level.

Who is the Staff Digital Skills Framework for?

The framework will help you to prepare for an increasingly digital world. By working through the self-diagnostic, which is currently in pilot form, you can find out what you already do well and identify areas that you may want to develop further. 

We have designed the skill set to be applicable to all staff. The skills are not meant to be restrictive; specialist roles will still require specific IT skills. We expect that individuals and managers will work out criteria to relate the skills to specific role requirements and professional development objectives.
