This strategy is published and drives the business planning and improvement planning process and is monitored via PIMS.
The Digital Transformation Strategy sets out the Council’s strategic digital priorities and aspirations and outlines what we plan to do to achieve our vision for a Digital Carmarthenshire. Technology is becoming increasingly pervasive across all sectors and becoming integrated in many aspects of our lives. Carmarthenshire County Council needs a digital transformation strategy because digital technology has the potential to transform the County and the lives of residents while generating long-term savings for the Council.
The Digital Technology Strategy sets out our digital technology priorities and aspirations over the next 3 years. Its purpose is to identify the key technologies and initiatives that will facilitate and underpin the vision and delivery of the organisations existing and overarching Digital Transformation Strategy. The audience for this Strategy are the leadership of the organisation, elected members, our customers and our staff.
Carmarthenshire’s ICT Services Division provides extensive support and services to all schools across the Authority. This will be the 1st ever Digital Schools Strategy for Carmarthenshire that sets out our vision, underpinned by overarching principles and key priorities areas for the provision of ICT Services to Schools.
The schools’ use of technology promotes innovative learning by digitally confident students, inspired by skilled and creative teaching. Welsh Government’s Digital Competence Framework is distinct from ICT. Digital competence is one of three cross-curricular responsibilities, alongside literacy and numeracy; it focuses on developing digital skills which can be applied to a wide range of subjects and scenarios that are transferrable to the world of work.
This fully costed and resourced three year Digital Schools Strategy outlines where we intend to take the ICT provision within schools over the coming years, to ensure that schools have the appropriate technology to deliver the Digital Competence Framework. The audience for this Digital Schools Strategy are our schools, teachers and staff, elected members and the leadership of the Authority.
