They are set to collaborate to build the Digital Skills Hub, to be launched in early 2022.
The initiative will drive forward efforts to eradicate digital exclusion, create a powerhouse of digital skills in the region, and ensure that employers and other stakeholders have a vast wealth of experience, expertise, and training from which to draw upon for the future.
The Hub will also focus on providing upskilling and retraining for people in the region through increased digital capacity, learning, and training.
And it will seek to bridge the digital skills gap that exists in the region and provide real routes into fulfilling and exciting careers in technology for students across the digital curriculum.
To ensure maximum collaboration, both colleges are calling on people from across the South of Scotland to join the conversation by visiting the www.digiskillscotland.com website.
Dumfries and Galloway College Principal Joanna Campbell said: “We are thrilled to be working with our valued colleagues, friends, and partners at Borders College to promote our new Digital Skills Hub.
“The South of Scotland has the potential to be a beacon of digital skills for Scotland and the United Kingdom and we are committed to helping our beautiful region become exactly that.”
