What is the Digital Skills Course about?

Free training to help you make the most of your mobile phone. You’ll find new ways to search for information on the Internet, manage your smartphone apps, create and edit content for social media, explore mobile banking and shopping, and more!

This three-week course is open to all people who already have access to a smartphone but would like to gain more knowledge to use it confidently in information searching, social networks, job applications and other transactions.

Please note: We don't cover any coding during this course. This course is not a software development course.

We'll work on the skills that digital citizens should be aware of, so they might come before the decision to pursue a career in coding or not.
