Digital literacy, problem-solving and creativity are often cited as essential skills for jobs of the future. But among 18-25-year-olds less than half (44%) believe that their education system is providing them with the skills they need to enter the workforce. 

The programme is a project-based curriculum that allows parents and guardians to support their children to learn valuable digital skills and for young people to independently improve their employability, all in an easy to use platform. The workshop is accompanied by a series of engaging videos with clear instructions and ready-to-use templates.

Examples of the sort of activities included are:

Planning a dream holiday…
… while learning spreadsheet formulas.

Edit a piece of writing…
… by programming your own code.

Google Applied Digital Skills Workshops are an opportunity for The RAF Museum, Cosford to host a free workshop for two groups of 25-30 students per day during school holidays. The workshops run for 2 hours with students receiving an overview of the Digital Skills programme and getting stuck in with their first project including creating an interactive Virtual Reality environment. They will leave with their login details, knowledge of how to access the curriculum and inspiration to develop their digital skills.
