We want to help everyone make the most of technology and thrive in our increasingly digital world. We’re empowering people with the skills they need today, for a better tomorrow.

Technology is a powerful enabler, but many people lack the skills and the confidence to make the most of it in their home and work lives. We’re well placed to tackle this challenge with our reach, partnerships and strong track record on digital skills training.

We’ve broadened and deepened our commitment with the launch of our Skills for Tomorrow programme. It’s designed to support communities across the UK – from school children, jobseekers and small businesses to older and more vulnerable members of society. We want to help millions of people, and we’ve already started.

Skills for Tomorrow

By 2025, we aim to empower 10 million people by helping them gain the skills they need to flourish in the digital world. We aim to inspire confidence, enhance understanding, unlock potential and reduce inequality.

We’re partnering with some of the UK’s leading digital skills organisations to offer everyone free access to the resources that work for them – either online or face-to-face. Our Skills for Tomorrow online portal  is the gateway to free courses and guidance. It covers everything from getting started and staying safe online to digital skills for working lives.

We’re also growing our long-standing programmes, such as Barefoot Computing in primary schools and Work Ready for young people. And we’ve launched new partnerships to sponsor over 90 Online Centres and support one million small business owners and their employees. And as families, businesses and communities across the UK felt the devastating impacts of Covid-19, we’ve been creating new resources to help with home schooling, offering guidance and training for jobseekers and the vulnerable, and providing vital support for SMEs.

Start your digital journey with free online or face-to-face courses, designed to empower you and your family with the skills you need today, for a better tomorrow.
