DTA launches Digital Training Marketplace

The federal government’s Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has expanded its Digital Marketplace to include a new Digital Training Marketplace.

In a statement released yesterday on its site, the DTA said the aim of the Digital Training Marketplace is to help agencies “build the skills they need to drive digital transformation across government” and “make it easier for agencies to find the training and provider that best suits their needs”.

It also provides small and medium-sized enterprises “easier access to government opportunities”.

The Digital Training Marketplace is supported by Learning Design Standards that have been developed with the Australian Public Service Commission and experts across government, to help agencies and training providers ensure training is engaging and high quality.

Initially there are four Learning Design Standards available:

  • Agile delivery
  • Content design
  • Digital foundations
  • User research

More standards will be released next month.

Already there are more than 80 sellers of digital specialist training listed in the Marketplace, and the DTA is encouraging other companies to apply.
