Ambassadors For Future Health Skills Programme

Ambassador Programme ImageHealth Business Services and the Office of the Chief Information Officer have collaborated with the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment to launch a programme for HSE staff. The aim of this foundational programme is to guide staff through utilising the digital tools they already have access to and build on their digital literacy skills. 

Within the Health Service environment, there is great advantage in networking in order to align change and service improvement at local and national level. A framework of support to managers and staff across the health and social care system is a key enabler for supporting these change initiatives. 

This programme:

  • Will inspire and encourage staff to become confident online by working on existing digital platforms and services along with fostering valuable partnerships in supporting digital transformation
  • Is part of the Government's Digital Skills for Citizen Scheme which will be hosted in Carlow, Cork, Dublin and Kerry
  • Will be delivered over three half-day sessions in three consecutive weeks
  • Will close for registration of interest on December 31st, 2019

Foundational topics covered within this programme:

  • Introduction to the internet
  • HSE online services
  • Social Media
  • Search Engines
  • Email and more

Please ensure that you speak to your line manager prior to registration of interest
