Brushing up on those IT skills ……
One of the most common things we hear from participants is that they worry their computer skills are not up to scratch. It’s a fact of life now that very often we will need at least a basic ability with a computer, but it can be quite daunting thinking about how to brush up on those skills.
Here at HeadsUp we’ve developed a programme which can help participants overcome those fears. We’re currently holding sessions at the Moat Foundation in Maldon (they have very kindly let us use their venue for free- part of their passion for supporting local communities) and we are looking to roll out the programme throughout Essex. Starting with the very basics such as how to turn a computer on, by the end of the sessions you will be confidently searching online for jobs and uploading your digital CV as you apply. The pace is up to you: by following the clear instructions you can take your time until you are comfortable with each step.
Every now and then we will also get an employer to pop in to have a chat about job applications and how to give yourself the best chance of success, so if this sounds like the kind of thing you’d find useful please get in touch.
