The B2W Group has a range of qualifications available designed to help those who may be unemployed and looking to gain new knowledge, skills and insights which can aid them into employment. One of these routes is our Pre-Apprenticeship Training programme, Introduction to Digital Technologies. This has already supported many learners into further learning or employment.
Digital skills play a vital role in today’s society, and according to the Employer Skills Survey Report, employers stated that one-third of vacancies they find difficult to fill is partly due to a lack of appropriate digital skills amongst applicants.
Most employers will expect you to have experience with digital applications such as Excel, Word, and email clients such as Outlook. Digital Technologies covers this and much more.
To see the benefits the Digital Technologies qualification provides, we spoke to a recent graduate of the course, Anthony Ajanaku.
