Local MSP, Rhoda Grant, Labour has welcomed an initiative introduced by BT to digitally upskill 10 million people in the UK by 2025.
Working in collaboration with a series of partners such as Google and Linkedin, the Skills for Tomorrow programme aims to help people of all ages and backgrounds to engage in the digital world. The programme aims to uplift people’s ability to make the most of technology, which will have knock on effects for both economic productivity and social inclusion.
Rhoda Grant said
“This is a fantastic resource which will help people with varying degrees of internet experience.
“There are short courses on a range of issues from mastering the basics of the internet to launching and building a business.
“We all know people who are not confident in using the internet and need a bit of a hand to allow them to engage. These short courses can be done at any time of the day, from the comfort of your own home and with categories such as Daily life, Parents, Work life, Business and Teachers there is something for everyone.”
