Our mission to help companies equip their workforces for the digital world matters now more than ever, as so many people get to grips with working remotely.

There are a wealth of resources available to help employees improve their digital skills. We have signposted some of the most effective free training resources below.

We have put together a hints and tips guide for remote working, from how to maintain productivity, to managing virtual working to looking out for your wellbeing.

This is a downloadable and editable resource. Please feel free to use the content as you see fit to help your employees adjust to this new working environment.

We have also put together a resource for those looking to help someone get online and understand the basics. This resource includes types of devices, connectivity and signposts to a short lists of training courses that can be used to get off the starting blocks.

We’ll be continuing to shape and improve this resource, so if you’ve got any handy tips you think we could include or ideas for areas that would be good to cover, let us know.

Essential Digital Skills Training

Using the Essential Digital Skills framework, we’ve pulled together a short list of Learn My Way courses that cover some of the specific topics that might help. The Learn My Way website is free to use and built specifically for those with low or no digital skills. It’s super simple and has interactive learning sessions and quizzes built in.

If you are trying to help others get online (such as an elderly family member), we suggest you start by familiarising yourself with Learn My Way.

Here’s two short videos to help you (you need the sound on):
