Learners study at their own pace and learning takes place through a variety of formats such as videos, podcasts and reading resources. A quiz follows each section to enable learners to check their progress, and a certificate of completion is awarded at the end.
The course covers three modules: Business Basics, Digital Skills and Wellbeing, with the aim of building confidence and raising awareness of skills that are useful in a work environment.
Clare Johnson, USW's Partnership and Outreach Manager said:
"We are really excited to offer this free course at this challenging time. Being out of work can lead to feelings of isolation and lack of confidence, so the course is designed to provide tools and information that will help refresh these skills, as well as offering some guidance for maintaining good mental health".
