Computing and Digital Skills

Whether you’re an absolute beginner and would like to learn how to use a mobile phone, or are an experienced IT user looking to grow your skills, we have a course for you.

What will I learn by studying computing and digital skills?

Computing and digital skills are considered essential and can not only help your everyday life, but also your job prospects, communication with others and access to services. The internet and computers play a huge part in modern life and are used by most people on a daily basis. These skills give you the ability to undertake simple tasks such as email communication, online shopping and using social media, as well as more complex tasks such as a cybersecurity and coding.

According to the 2019 Consumer Digital Index, 22% of the population do not have the digital skills needed for everyday life in the UK. If you relate to this and would like to develop your IT skills, you’re in the right place. Take a look at our courses and enrol today to boost your confidence and abilities online.

Please note, all learners enrolling on an accredited IT course must undergo an admission session first to help us understand your ability and put you on the best course to help you achieve.
