BT Skills for Tomorrow offers a wide range of free resources and information aimed at helping people feel more confident in the online world. We are working closely with leading social change charity, the Good Things Foundation, to ensure people across the UK – especially older and vulnerable people and those in self-isolation – have the digital skills they need to keep up to date and healthy during the spread of the coronavirus.
With large numbers of people now practising social distancing, self-isolation or confined to their homes, it is more important than ever to ensure that those with low or no digital skills can keep in touch with family and friends and access vital health services. We are sharing the Good Things Foundation’s resources via our pioneering Skills for Tomorrow portal, helping people build their digital skills and work online effectivelywherever they are, through our partnerships with organisations such as LinkedIn Learning and Google Digital Garage online.
The site includes key topics such as how to navigate the NHS website, how to access GP online services, how to make video calls, and how to do online shopping or banking, as well as engaging activities for children aged 4-11 which help to develop their computational thinking skills.
