Digital Skills

Enhance the digital skills of your workforce through fully funded short courses and CPD. Our team provides dedicated support available across rural Northumberland, North Tyneside, and Newcastle. Invest in your employees and improve your organisation.

The North of Tyne Digital Skills Innovation and Leadership Project supports employers and employees to access fully funded courses to enhance the digital skills of their workforce.

Our team will provide the opportunity for individuals to access training, addressing specific skills gaps identified by employers in disciplines which could include:

What we offer

  • Taster sessions for businesses and the community, delivered online and in outreach venues, to stimulate interest in digital skills.
  • Accredited and non-accredited structured short courses will enable learners to build toward higher-level qualifications. Provision will be flexible, with an emphasis on blended learning approaches, to attract individuals who would not traditionally access standard higher education courses.
