The DPC board has approved a new Task Force to review short courses and career development opportunities in digital preservation. 

The DPC strategic plan includes a high level objective to support members’ workforces through the provision of specialised training. Recognising the costs of provision and the very great range of expertise required, in 2009 the DPC established a ‘Leadership Programme’ which offered scholarships in order that members could send staff to attend training courses offered by third party providers. Since then, the DPC has made available 24 scholarships to attend ULCC’s Digital Preservation Training Programme, 3 scholarships to attend UKDA’s How to set up and run a data centreand 38 scholarships to attend the British Library’s Digital Preservation the Planets Way. To date this has cost the Coalition just over £14,000 and an allocation of £10,000 is available in financial year 2011-12.
