Are Your Digital Skills Up To Date?
Using the internet is important in all aspects of life…but none more so than in getting a new job or improving your skills.
The Volunteer Centre and North Warwickshire’s Community Hubs are urging more people to get to grips with the net during Get On Line Week (this week) by trying a series of on line modules to learn more about setting up email addresses, how to use a search engine, online banking, internet security and filling out on line application forms.
The modules can be found at www.learnmyway.com and are backed by UK Online Centres. The Volunteer Centre North Warwickshire became a centre about a year ago and has so far helped three hundred people learn more about going digital.
Hub Spokesperson Michelle Black said “People can log on and register using the centre code 3455824. If you don’t feel confident having a go at home or if you don’t have the Internet at home, you can go down to your local hub to find out more.”
