Want to improve your digital skills for work?

Codeworks: Digital will guide you in how to get the best out of a range of popular and up-to-date software applications, including the new online Office 365 versions.

You’ll learn a range of digital skills suited to your needs, such as how to:

  • Communicate through emails and manage your online calendar
  • Produce professional-looking word processing documents
  • Create effective spreadsheets and databases
  • Design your own inventive presentations

Codeworks: Digital is flexible, so that means you work online at your own pace, at times that suit you and learn skills that are based on your own interests. You’re invited to come along to any of our free drop in sessions available every week across the city where you’ll receive support in working through the course from our team of expert tutors. No booking is required.

Come along to any of our drop-in sessions to enrol for the course and start your digital journey. 

Previous skills required
You should already have a basic level of digital skills/ experience equivalent to the learning outcomes of our Level 3 Getting Started with Codeworks tutor-led courses. This includes, for example, the ability to use a keyboard, open and save a word processing document.

If you know someone who is nervous about using a computer and does not already have these skills then Getting Started with Codeworks tutor-led courses may be the right option for them. Course are available across the city, contact your local library for more information.

Get Qualified
On completion of Codeworks: Digital you’ll achieve either the SQA accredited NPA in Digital Literacy qualification at SCQF Level 3 or PC Passport qualification at SCQF Level 4.

You’ll also be ready to progress to Codeworks: Developer (SCQF Level 5) where you’ll learn how to design a website and app, get an introduction to coding plus a whole lot more. We even have options for work experience!

Codeworks: Digital takes around 10 hours to complete and is completely free of charge!
