Essential Skills Audit Session Training

 

Organisational Benefit

The term Essential Skills covers the skills of numeracy, literacy and ICT.  After leaving education many people often find that their skills levels in these areas can drop through lack of use. As the demands on our workforce to become more ICT literate increase people can also feel left behind and unconfident about grasping new technologies or taking part in e- learning.

An Essential Skills audit will give individuals a detailed picture of where there are gaps in their knowledge and allow for and effective individual learning plan to be put in place that will target the areas highlighted by the assessment.
