Colchester Institute is now offering the Essential Digital Skills Qualification. These skills are essential in many job roles as more digital technology is used to carry out tasks.
These courses are offered at Entry Level 3 and Level 1 and are fully funded for students aged 16-19 and adults aged 19+ who are employed or seeking work but have low or no digital skills.
The course will be offered at two levels, in two streams: Life and Work.
The Entry Level 3 courses are for newer computer users and Level 1 for those that would like to develop their skills. The Life stream covers things such as using Microsoft Teams and Zoom for video conferencing, as well social media.
The Work stream will prepare you for working in an increasingly digital world, providing the support you need to build your confidence when working with computers and applications for word processing, spreadsheets and presentations.
These new courses are part of a government initiative to ensure no one is left behind from the rapid changes to technology. If you would like to learn new skills or sharpen those you already have, please make a booking enquiry today!
