Working with partners across Scotland to improve digital skills

Introduction to the Digital Office
Learners who would like to work in an office environment and looking for a way to brush up on their digital skills before taking the leap can join our friendly tutors and update their digital skills. This includes:

  • Using Artificial Intelligence in the workplace
  • Cloud culture and MS 365
  • Video call etiquette
  • Intro to Excel
  • Digital scheduling tools on Outlook and the internet

Bespoke Digital Skills courses
It can be tricky to identify exactly what digital skills groups and individuals need to work on, especially in the ever-evolving world of cloud and app-based computing. Often, off-the-shelf courses waste time covering learning that is irrelevant to learners. Our tutors are experienced in working together with learners to identify learning needs, and developing bespoke courses in response to learner needs and desires. Courses can include the following elements:

  • Basic MS 365 skills, including Word, Excel, Outlook and Teams
  • Video calls for work, learning and fun
  • Introduction to the Online Learning and the Virtual Learning Environment (we use Canvas, which is used by many colleges and universities in Scotland, including City of Glasgow College, Glasgow Clyde College, Queen Margaret University, Herriot Watt and Stirling University).
  • Intro to tablets
  • Apps for everyday life: exploring apps for utilities, shopping, health etc.

Our Partners
We’ve run numeracy, literacy and ICT workshops and courses in workplaces, such as Royal Strathclyde Blindcraft Industries (RSBi), with community groups such as the Glasgow Disability Alliance, North West Recovery Communities, and Home-Start, and in partnership with Jobcentre Plus. We’ve also worked in partnership with Local Authorities in the Borders and Edinburgh to deliver practitioners’ courses and courses for adult learners.
