Essential digital skills

15th January 2020

One for our tutors;

Booking has opened for the Education and Training Foundation’s (ETF) free face-to-face and online training events to support staff involved in delivering courses for the upcoming Essential Digital Skills entitlement.

As from September 2020, adults aged 19 and over with no or low digital skills will be entitled to free training to develop their digital skills, in line with existing maths and English entitlements. Demand for courses is anticipated to be high and there is interest in delivery from all parts of the Further Education (FE) and Training sector.

Booking now open for new Essential Digital Skills CPD events

The face-to-face training workshops will take place in Bristol, Leeds and London, starting on 29 January. Webinars are also being provided for those who cannot attend face-to-face training. It is anticipated that the programme will be particularly helpful for those teachers and trainers who are not ICT specialists but rather will deliver digital skills training as part of another learning programme such as ESOL or Preparation for Life and Work.
