Digital learning (ICT)

Every day, more jobs become dependent on Information & Communication Technology (ICT) skills. Government services, banking and even social lives are managed more easily by those who know their way round a computer or smart phone.

Although Skills for Life is now being referred to as "English & Maths", digital learning and ICT remains as important as ever.

ICT training at all levels forms a large part of the work of trade union-led learning centres around the country, and unionlearn works in partnership with many organisations, including the UK Online Centres and Go ON UK, to help teach ICT and provide access to opportunities for people to develop or improve computer and internet skills.

Unionlearn has signed up to support the UK Digital Inclusion Charter, launched to mark the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web. The charter aims to help more people go online.
