We've been looking at our e-commerce qualifications recently, with a view to updating them. So, yesterday's E-Commerce Workshop, organised by Scotland IS, was very timely. And since it was held in the Raddison Hotel in Glasgow, it was also very convenient.
The full team attended since our existing e-commerce qualifications span the advanced and non-advanced sectors. It was an excellent event. Around 40 people attended, mostly from Scottish businesses. The event was very practical, the aim being to provide practical advice to permit more businesses to get online.
I learnt a great deal from the event. Some real experts were leading the workshops. I think all three of us (me, Caroline and Hilary) learnt a lot, which will help us to ensure our existing portfolio of e-commerce awards is up-to-date.
We recently developed a new NPA in Doing Business Online, which added to the existing NPA in Website Enterprise, and there are various HN units that relate to this area. We are currently looking at these qualifications to check that they are fit for purpose.
