£26 Million For Digital Skills - Perthshire Chamber of Commerce

£26 Million For Digital Skills

Around 23,000 people will be given new online skills and training to help improve their chances of securing a job or to reduce isolation.

The £26 million Connecting Scotland programme, which helps those on lower incomes and groups like the elderly, will offer online training skills as well as providing people with devices like iPads and Chromebooks, and unlimited data for two years.

This builds upon previous funding aimed at helping more people access the internet, include those who were at high risk from COVID-19, care home residents, disadvantaged families with children and young people leaving care. This latest funding also provides an existing group of 36,000 recipients with another year of unlimited data.

Organisations can apply for phase 3 funding until 5 July.
