Unite Scotland is pleased to announce the launch of a new digital skills platform called ‘learnwithunite’.
This is an innovative approach to life-long learning that is delivered through a flexible, blended learning model teaching Unite members to develop practical digital skills at a comfortable pace.
Welcoming the new programme, Unite Scotland Education Officer Jim Aitken said: “This combines essential computer-based skills such as getting online and using email alongside training for social media platforms using the latest smartphone and tablet devices.
“Learnwithunite applies learning techniques to enhance course engagement and enjoyment. It will boost your confidence, enable you to keep up to speed with the latest technologies and our Unite tutors will be with you every step of the way.”
Learnwithunite offers 7 modules to improve your digital skills:
• Computer basics
• Online basics
• Social networking
• Digital media
• Digital music
• Digital photography
• Audio and video software
You will then progress to achieving your ECDL (European Computer Driving License) qualification that will equip you with the skills to use a computer confidently and effectively.
Tried, tested and trusted, ECDL programmes have been delivered to over 11 million people, in 41 languages across 148 countries. Over 2 million people have taken ECDL in the UK since 1997 and you will be part of that growing number.
