Making the most of the Internet

18 October 2021 12:30pm–2:00pm

UNISON is proud to be part of the ‘get online week’ in October, with the launch of a series of basic digital skills workshops that supports a digital inclusion campaign organised by Good Things Foundation.

The Covid pandemic may have accelerated digital take up for some but for many millions, the gap, if anything, has got wider.

Over 13 million people in the UK lack the digital skills they need for work (Lloyds Consumer Digital Index, 2020). A lack of digital skills can often lead to greater isolation, poverty, leading to poorer health outcomes, job prospects and education, access to public services and opportunities to improve their quality of life. Many public sector workers, working in catering, cleaning, social care and health and many other manual and office-based functions face an increasing demand to have digital skills, whether it is to digitally record schedules, rotas and timesheets. This series aims to build up your confidence using digital skills.

This course is intended for those who are able to do basic online tasks and want to build up their confidence and knowledge of the internet.

This course will:

  • Provide a brief history and introduction into how the Internet works.
  • Debunk some of the basics on what the Internet is, understand how it can help save you money, and access other online services
