Hello *|FNAME|

Applications are now open for our BT Skills for Tomorrow funding opportunity, aimed at empowering people to gain the skills they need today, for a better tomorrow. This is a great opportunity for those that support socially excluded adults to learn essential digital skills. Online Centres in specific areas of the UK (listed in the guidance document) are eligible to apply. Applications are open until 5pm on Friday 14 February and we’ve got various contract sizes available of up to £10,000. For more information, take a look at our website

We’ve got lots of great training webinars taking place over the next couple of months. So, if you’re wanting to upskill in certain areas, either from learning how to build a strong brand for your organisation to Teaching and Facilitation, you can sign-up to a range of our webinars by visiting the Online Centres Network training page

Good Things Foundation has been appointed by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to support the delivery of the next Census in England and Wales. In 2021, the Census will be ‘digital first’ - we will provide support to ensure those without digital skills or digital access can participate.

We’re looking for organisations who can deliver support to people wishing to complete the Census online between March and May 2021. You’ll be required to deliver the service across a set amount of hours each week with the possibility of additional delivery covering evenings, weekends and the census weekend.

From Monday 10 February, we’re asking all organisations who are interested to submit an Expression of Interest by Friday 6 March at 5pm. We will then ask successful organisations to complete a fuller application form in May, and successful applicants will be informed by the end of June. Although delivery does not begin until March 2021, onboarding for successful applicants will begin in August 2020.

Good Things Foundation website.
