How digitally capable are you?

Use the digital capability discovery tool to work out your proficiency in different areas. The discovery tool gives you the opportunity to find out more about your own digital capability through a series of reflective questions.

Completing the questions will give you an opportunity to reflect on your confidence and capability in each area of digital capability, and provide feedback including a summary of your digital profile; suggested actions you can take to build your capability further; and links to resources that you can use to support your development.

You will be able to map many of the findings back to courses on Lynda.com. If you'd like to discuss your findings or have further questions please feel free to get in touch.
