New Course: Essential Digital Skills

< back to news

The digital economy has reshaped how people work, live and learn. To find work and fully engage in society, nearly everyone needs to possess some basic digital skills and knowledge – whether it’s how to communicate via email, conduct Zoom calls or stay safe online.

That’s why we’re delighted to now offer Essential Digital Skills Qualifications – in both Entry Level 3 and Level 1. A Digital Skills qualification is an ideal way to develop the digital skills needed to fully participate in life, work and the digital landscape. 

Our Entry Level 3 course is suited for learners with little to no experience with technology, and will take place over the course of two weeks. Alternatively, our Level 1 course is a three-week programme designed for those with some familiarity using digital devices and the internet. Don’t worry – we’ll assess which one best suits each individual!

During this course, learners will gain critical everyday digital skills, including:

  • Using the internet for research
  • Creating, editing and saving digital documents
  • Communicating through social media, email and text messaging
  • Conducting banking, shopping and other activities online
  • Staying safe when using digital devices

We’re excited to be offering this course in a blended learning format. Learners will have the opportunity to combine independent study with in-person courses in our Covid-safe Croydon Training Centre.

Courses start on 6th September! To refer your customers, simply send them to the course page here to enrol!
