The Government predicts 1.2 million digitally skilled people will be needed by 2022 (Digital Skills Strategy 2017). However, 12.6 million of the adult population lack basic digital skills.

Nine out of ten jobs involve the use of computers. So how are you going to meet the growing demand for digital skills?

OCN London has responded by creating a range of innovative qualifications in Digital Skills and Mobile Application Development and Enterprise. The aim is to increase learners’ understanding and use of technology and give them the skills and knowledge that employers are demanding.

The Digital Skills qualifications are fully funded and can be delivered as short courses throughout the year. Assessment of the units can be linked to work experience or work placement increasing a young person’s employability.

Both qualifications are available as Awards or Certificates and free, ready-to-use practical assessment tasks are available for the Digital Skills Entry 3 and Level 1 qualifications.

Units in both the Digital Skills and Mobile Apps qualifications include:

  • Introduction to coding and programming
  • Developing and taking a mobile app to market
  • Setting up and maintaining a digital system
  • Digital safety and security
  • Planning mobile app production
