82% of all job openings online require at least basic digital skills, such as using office programs like Microsoft Word or Excel. Some of us haven’t thought about maths since secondary school. Others want to be more connected online, but don’t know where to start. With the Skills Toolkit, you can brush up on both in your own time. For free.

The toolkit includes the launch of free courses from trusted providers aimed at improving skills includig maths, computing, coding, business and finance. Course providers include Amazon, Cisco, Google, Lloyds Bank and The Open University.

Other aspects of the toolkit will enable users to expand and improve their CVs, enabling them to add ‘soft skills’ such as leadership and management, which businesses identify as key abilities that they want to see in job applicants.

Online: Build up your skills now with The Skills Toolkit.
