Seetec Helps Bridge the Digital Skills Gap

Kings Lynn Graduation

Twelve participants have successfully completed our two-week Digital Skills Academy in King’s Lynn, helping to equip them with the ICT and social media skills needed to help find employment.

To mark the upcoming fourth National Employability Day on the 28th June, the group were presented with their certificates for Functional ICT skills, Social Media for Job Prospecting, E-Safety and Personal Well-being.

Former fork-lift driver and dustman Andrew Sowerby, who moved to King’s Lynn two years ago, said the course had helped him gain confidence. “The course is really good. I’ve used a computer before for gaming, but I’ve learned a lot about the business side, such as using graphics.

“I never knew all the things I could do on the computer. The trainer takes the time to help each single person. She has the patience of an angel. Seetec has really helped me through a difficult time, they’ve pushed me and given me a lot of confidence.”

Sarah Checketts, Seetec Tutor, said the learners were all aged over 40 and lacked previous computer experience. “They have learned new skills and improved their knowledge to give them the confidence and skills to use ICT safely in their daily lives and to help them with the job search process.”
