“Because of welfare reform, it’s increasingly important that vulnerable people feel a certain amount of confidence when switching on a computer, so courses like this, teaching basic skills are really important. The fact that it’s accredited is a massive selling point too... it's already proving a springboard to further training.”
Veena Torchia, Lead Tutor, Crisis
