Why join the course?
Almost every job now involves a range of digital skills, yet employers report a shortage in skilled new starters. This course will enable you, as a teacher or trainer, to develop your learners’ digital skills for successful employment and progress in the modern workplace.
Through real-life case studies, resources and practical support, you’ll be able to help your learners manage their online identity and digital information required for their work. You’ll be shown how to assist learners to create digital content and provide you with tools for communicating effectively and working collaboratively.
Build different approaches for teaching digital skills
Explore the different ways of teaching digital skills and find out how you can apply them to your own subject and teaching approach. This will allow you to prepare learners to meet the demand for digital skills in the workplace. You will test out a number of different exercises and platforms to develop their understanding further.
Teach your learners to create and publish digital content
Creating digital content is a common task across a variety of positions and industries. Teach your learners how to create basic and advanced content, and review the tools available for both the training and the task. You’ll even learn how to help them work collaboratively online, adding another set of useful skills to their repertoire.
This course is open to everyone but particularly aimed at those working in the vocational education and training sector, including: further education, skills training, vocational education, workplace learning and lifelong learning or adult education.
