Decision status: For Determination
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
The Strata IT Director presented the report on the Training Need Gap Analysis report which was commissioned to look at the ICT skills requirements of all three Authorities. There was currently no dedicated ICT training/support mechanism in place for Councillors in East Devon or Teignbridge District Councils.
The report set out a number of recommendations for the training of staff as well as an increase in the overall training budget or a dedicated support allocation to Strata for a high level of ICT support for Councillors.
The Board supported the training proposals, and recognised it was also desirable to ensure there was a good level of ICT skills competency for all staff.
Strata Joint Scrutiny Committee had considered the report at its meeting on 24 September 2018 and its comments were reported.
RESOLVED that that the report be noted and the budget spend and delivery of a Strata provided IT training service for end users, including Councillors and officers across the three authorities would be funded by Strata for the first year.
