EE/BT Enterprise Digital Skills for Tomorrow Programme aims to allow as many people as possible to access free online resources to support themselves and others to ensure you have the skills you need to flourish in the digital world during this challenging time.
With the spread of the coronavirus, having digital skills is more important than ever. Large numbers of people are self-isolating or are confined to their homes. It’s vital that those with low or no digital skills can keep in touch with family and friends and access vital health services.
The spread of the virus also presents significant challenges to small businesses and many people will need support as they work from home for the first time. Families with children at home from school also need to get the best out of technology to help their children learn and play.
Working in partnership with leading digital skills organisations, BT Enterprise has bought together a whole host of free resources and information to help people with each of these challenges through the Skills for Tomorrow Programme. Visit www.bt.com/skillsfortomorrow for free webinars, online courses, advice and useful links.
The website features resources for staying in touch with family and friends, keeping up to date with the news, and finding information to help you stay healthy during the spread of the coronavirus for elderly and vulnerable people.
There is also available support for small businesses to build on their digital skills, through Google Digital Garage, Small Business Britain, and LinkedIn Learning.
Lastly, there is help for families to get the most from technology and provide some handy resources if you’re looking for ways to help your kids keep learning while you’re at home. BT Enterprise have partnered up with Internet Matters to provide support to help children balance the opportunities that tech brings, along with the challenges as they spend more time online at home.
A concise guide to the support available through the programme which can help parents, teachers, the elderly, vulnerable people, people working from home and small business owners with links to resources can be downloaded here.
