Strode College Supports Get Online Week


Get online. Get connected and Love our Colleges

Get Online Week is a digital inclusion campaign organised by Good Things Foundation.

Over 13 million people in the UK lack the digital skills they need for work (Lloyds Consumer Digital Index, 2020). A lack of digital skills and access can have a huge negative impact on a person’s life, leading to poorer health outcomes and a lower life expectancy, increased loneliness and social isolation, less access to jobs and education. If the last two years have taught us anything, it's how vital digital skills are to our wellbeing and safety.

Get Online Week runs during the week of 18 - 24 October 2021 and Strode College is supporting this by offering Free sessions to learn how to use digital tools to stay in touch with people, save time and money. The two sessions run on Tuesday 19 October at 9.30am to 11.30am or Wednesday 20 October 10.00am to 12.00pm.

This is also ‘love our Colleges week’ so no better time to ‘Get in, go further’ which is the theme of ‘Love our College Week’. Get in focus on showcasing all of the great things that happen in colleges every day and this get on line week is a great example of a great thing that Strode College is doing to support the local community.

Go Further is where we shout about destinations, alumni, and the big and small victories that have allowed people to move on to the next stage of their life. Our Free sessions to give people the opportunity to learn how to use digital tools is an ideal example of how colleges can help people develop skills to move on in life.

Nadine Norman, Essential Digital Skills Centre Development Manager, Employer Engagement says

“Computer and digital skills are so important nowadays and I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to safely participate in our digital world and no one should be left behind. I am proud to work with the Good Things Foundation to offer these free courses and to support and spread the Get Online Week message that everyone can: Get online. Get connected.”
