Hello <<First Name>>
Earlier this week, the Department for Education announced a new Skills Toolkit which aims to support furloughed workers to boost their skills and offer free online courses on literacy, numeracy and digital skills. Good Things Foundation is delighted to be helping the nation learn and gain confidence through our free Learn My Way online courses and Make It Click directory included as part of the new Skills Toolkit.
As mentioned in last week's newsletter, we’ve decided to temporarily change our find a centre map so that people can see if your organisation is active during this difficult time. If you are still offering support to people in your community, we’d like to hear from you so that we can make sure you feature on the public facing map. You can review or change your centre's information at any time by logging into the Online Centres Network website.
It’s great to see so many of you sharing your pictures of learners receiving devices as part of DevicesDotNow. Supporting digital inclusion is at the heart of what Good Things Foundation does and we’re proud to be working with FutureDotNow on this initiative. If you would like to find out more about the project or request a device, you can visit our website.
If you’re looking for more support, as you adjust to the current situation, there are lots of useful links on our resources page which is updated daily. You can find lots of information around running your organisation online, helping your learners, managing your health and wellbeing and funding opportunities.
