Learning digital skills (how to use a computer) is becoming more and more important for everyday life
We can help you at the Lighthouse through our Online Basics and Online Plus courses; designed to help complete beginners or novices get started. These courses are ideal for helping you to start using computers, email and the internet.
Only this week there has been a big story about over 400,000 job seekers loosing benefits by being sanctioned because they have not job hunted enough (Click here for BBC story). From our own experience this of often because people struggle to get to grips with computer use and how to use the Universal Jobmatch website.
Our solution is to encourage you to complete our FREE computer training courses, to attend our Universal Jobmatch training which runs every Monday, and to join our Work Club. All of these combined will give you the resources that you need to be an efficient job seeker which hopefully will get you back into work more quickly and also keep you away from the current sanctioning regime.
Reminder of what you can do:
> Every Monday – Universal Jobmatch training 11am – 1pm.
> Every day – Online Basics & Online Plus – learn at your own speed/
> Every Week – Work Club on Wednesday & Thursday 10am-1pm
