Digital Inclusive; Making sure that people have the capability to use the internet

 

As more workplaces move to use electronic devices and services move online, it is important to give people the skills required to use these devices and services.

Most workplaces use some form of electronic device. These can range from digital tachograph, satellite navigation, ePOD (electronic proof of delivery), computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.

Employers are also advertising jobs on line and asking people to upload their CV or fill in an online form to apply for jobs.

Services are also moving online (including registering with a doctor, internet banking) and more people are using online services to keep in touch with family and friends through Skype, Facebook or Instagram. Most retailers have online shopping sites and many offer discounts for buying online.

 

Learn my Way has been created to give people the skills and confidence they need to access these services and resources. There are over 5000 learning centres based around the UK who use the Learn My Way website to teach people these skills. The URTU Learning Project has two mobile centres one in England using Centre number 3451706 and another mobile center in Wales which uses center number 3453170.

As well as these learning centres you can also access the Learn My Way website from any computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone. The site is available to everyone and is free to register!

Listed below are all the courses available, you do not have to complete all the courses just the ones relevant to yourself and you can revisit these anytime you need a refresher. From the websites home page you will be able to see all these courses as well as track your progress.
