Digital Outreach Project

Description

This session is a starting point for anyone looking to build digital confidence, develop digital literacy skills or start a level 1 or level 2 course in information technology or digital skills.

It is suitable for anyone with basic experience of using a digital device (desktop, laptop, tablet, phone) at home or at work.

As a pre-entry/entry level course no prior qualifications or knowledge are required. Workshops are tailored to individual requirements and aim to help learners navigate essential day-to-day digital skills, in a friendly and supportive environment.

Some people like to make notes after a skills scan, so a pen and paper are helpful.

If the course is taking place in a library, you will require a library membership card which can be arranged in the first session.
