Digital & general computer skills

Digital Skills & Other Computer Skills

Digital skills are universal, as essential as English and Maths for making progress at work, expressing yourself and participating socially.

Our Digital and Office Skills courses develop all your key digital and computing skills from beginner to advanced. You do not learn just the software but focus on the tasks and goals digital skills help you achieve whether analysing data at work or organising your photos on your smartphone. 

You also develop the most in-demand common work and life skills such as problem-solving, analysing, decision-making, working together, attending to details and seeing the bigger picture.

Courses available both in-person and online

Whether you are a recently redundant manager, a carer returning to work, an experienced office-worker or a retiree, our digital skills courses will help you upskill, communicate more effectively, and become a more active citizen.

You can choose long or short courses, online or in-person, with qualifications or without. 

No matter how you prefer to learn, we have the class for you. Most of our courses are FREE if you are on a low income or claiming benefits.
