Chelsea Foundation’s Education team continue to deliver adult education throughout this period of uncertainty, specifically targeted at those who wish to gain qualifications either to progress into employment or move further within their respective field.

Online delivery through Google Classroom means participants are able to enrol and undertake courses delivered directly by Foundation staff wherever there is an internet connection and a desire to learn.

Digital Skills is just one of the courses on offer and gives participants a chance to gain a recognised Level 1 OCN qualification by covering topics from a range of subjects including data security, using collaborative technology and most importantly, how you can stay safe online and protect yourself.

Education operations officer James Macdonald said: ‘Delivering Digital Skills qualifications online is a natural fit and offers a chance for participants to engage and test their learning immediately in a practical environment.

‘The digital world is something that touches on all of our lives – even where we don’t realise, and while this may be more so within the present time it will continue to grow and shape how we communicate, work and educate within society.

‘We want people to feel safe and secure navigating an ever-changing digital future and through delivering Digital Skills qualifications online we offer a chance for participants to engage and test their learning immediately in a practical environment.’

Our Education Team are particularly keen to speak to anyone wishing to refer themselves, colleagues, friends or family for this opportunity that will certainly provide focus, purpose and structure immediately to daily lives while also providing a longer-term edge to CVs and portfolios in a post Covid-19 world.

Due to funding requirements, the course can be applied for by anyone over the age of 19 on 31 August 2019 who lives within a London postcode/borough and earning less than £20,850 per year.
