A Digital Competence Framework for the Third Sector

Dr Carol Jacklin Jones attended the ‘Switch to Innovation Summit’ in Portugal to take part in the A Digital Competence Framework for the Third Sector Conference in Portugal last week.

Carol co-launched the presentation of work and participated in training for third sector leaders.

CVSL is a ‘knowledge partner’ for this multi-partner European project.

In the post-COVID context there is a need to embrace and adopt the digital tools and practices we have become accustomed to for the longer term.

With this in mind, the EU3Digital consortium is proud to launch A Digital Competence Framework for the Third Sector.

The report is the product of eighteen-months of research to provide an intellectual basis for the work of EU3Digital Consortium and funded by Erasmus+, the project aims to ensure the success and sustainability of social enterprises by producing key learning materials and free-access resources.

The report presents a digital competence framework that reflects the needs of the third sector as it faces a complex and turbulent environment and highlights which areas of digital competence are most important for Third Sector Organisations particularly those smaller organisations “charities, voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises, and cooperatives.”
