Digital Skills Assessment for Child Protection Data

This resource is intended to provide a general roadmap for the development and implementation of a custom digital skills assessment within a child protection government agency or organization.


Given the ever-increasing significance of digital skills for all work, especially work requiring the collection and use of sensitive data related to children in precarious situations, assessing and improving digital skills among the child protection workforce is of utmost importance.

Government agencies and implementing partners specializing in child protection require reliable data and digital tools to address vulnerable children’s needs and support the case management decision-making process. There is a lack of easy-to-use tools and/or methodologies to identify and assess the various competencies that caseworkers and other child protection actors need to manage digital tools and devices or transform and exchange digital data securely.
