What learners say

I was made redundant last year & needed to learn new skills to find a new job. I had some skills on the computer, but I needed to expand them - Digital Skills online has been something I looked forward to every week. I highly recommend this course.

I have much more confidence sending emails and joining video calls. This has helped me stay in touch to with my family and friends during lock down.

I do not have to ask for help now which is lovely. Altogether I feel more confident in the digital world.
