  • Digital communication and collaboration
  • Digital creativity and problem solving
  • Managing your digital learning
  • Digital preferences and needs
  • Being digital

As an SGS DigiED Academy learner you will be part of a Team where you will be supported to complete online courses and join online training events. You will have access to face-to-face support in our LibraryPlus areas and be among the first of our learners to explore any new technological advances available to our College.

As your skills grow through the Academy you will receive digital badges to confirm your capabilities. You will be able to communicate your skills to employers, or other organisations, by sharing these badges through social media; on CVs; and on job or higher education applications. You will also receive some mini course completion certificates and gain industry-recognised Awards that will help you stand out from the crowd.
