Digital Skills Explained

Digital skills are increasingly important in our lives. We now need to use computers and digital devices to do many things that we used to do face-to-face and there's a quite literally a world of information available to us online. Learning how to utilise digital technology can help you get ahead in life, which means now more than ever you need to acquire basic digital skills.
