The Department of Education have launched a new platform giving easy access to free digital and numeracy courses for businesses.
With many business owners unwillingly finding themselves with time on their hands, brushing up on old skills or learning new ones is a proactive way of getting through lockdown.
This week the Department of Education (DfE) have launched the ‘Skills Toolkit’, a new online platform giving people easy access to free, high-quality digital and numeracy courses to help them build up their skills, progress in work and boost their job prospects.
The platform offers a range of courses at all levels, from introductory to advanced, which were chosen in consultation with top businesses and education experts. It’s open to everyone, whether they have recently been furloughed and want to learn new skills, are out of work and looking to build up their CV, or if they’re just keen to keep their mind healthy and skills sharp during this time.
