Computing and Digital Skills

We have a wide range of Computing and digital skills courses suitable for a beginner through to advanced learners.

A 2018 report conducted by Lloyds Bank UK Consumer Digital Index found that in the UK:

  • 11.3 million people (21%) lack the full basic digital skills
  • 4.3 million (8%) have no basic digital skills at all
  • 5.4 million working adults (10%) are without basic digital skills
  • people with a registered disability are 4 times as likely to be offline
  • 28% of those aged 60+ are offline.

These statistics undoubtedly prove the need for essential digital skills, especially for adults.

Research has shown that those with high digital engagement see lifestyle and health benefits from this: 87% say it helps them to connect better with friends and family and 84% say it helps them to organise their life.
