Digital Skills

Share has a range of iPads and PCs running Microsoft Office and Adobe software. The accredited course covers digital skills for work - how to use a computer or technology to complete specific tasks and apply for jobs. Students develop their communication skills by listening to instructions for different tasks in an office-style environment. They learn how to prioritise workloads, organise their time, and problem-solve IT issues.
