Our provisions are digital skills training to support people to secure a job, to progress in work, start online business and/or progress to further training.
1 Essential Digital Skills Level 1
The Essential Digital Skills standards are:
*Using devices and handling information
*Creating and editing
*Transacting online activities
*Being responsible, safe and legal online
At level 1 the focus will be more on skills for work with a secondary focus on skills for life.
The qualification is designed for students with little or no digital skills and there are no formal entry requirements. It is, however, useful for learners to be able to turn on and control a device, connect it to the internet and open browsers and applications.
Gateway Qualification is the accredited body for this course. The qualification will be assessed using an online platform. There is one timed assessment at each level. Learners that successfully complete the course will be awarded a Level 1 qualification certificate. Whilst both Entry 3 and level 1 contain a mix of contexts, in in the Level 1 there is a balance between skills for life and skills for work. The qualification provides learners with the essential digital skills which are needed in a wide range of situations in life and at work.
