Outcomes expected

 


Participants will develop a better understanding of how their online
activities can work for and against them with insight into how and
why their details may be accessed and used. They will also be
empowered with tools and skills to position themselves better for
the work market and against negative influences.
Over the duration of the course, there is a natural expectation that
participants will develop motivation and confidence, improve
English & IT and start to think more seriously about employability
and digital safety.
Following completion of the programme, options for in-house
certification are available.
