The article presents a conceptual framework for development of a model for building of advanced digital competences for digital transformation in cyber resilient environment. It identifies key research areas to support the development and implementation of the model and describes the current results of engaging with the key stakeholders from administration, academia and industry. The focus is on defining the framework for implementing the proposed model in a form of ICT Academy, supported by an e-Platform, governed in most effective way under the COBIT principles and using an innovative e-learning approach. Comparative analysis is made with the development of the NATO Communications and Information Academy (NCI Academy) as an instrument to support the digital endeavour of NATO in order to identify the good practices for the development of a National ICT academy, being able to be part of the trusted collaborative network of the NCI Academy as well.
