The Government has launched ‘An Hour to Skill’, a new campaign supported by leading businesses and educational institutions, to encourage the nation to set aside just one hour a week for online learning, by taking a free course from The Skills Toolkit.
The Skills Toolkit offers high-quality, online courses giving people easy access to skills that could unlock job opportunities in a competitive market, or help them get ahead in their current role – from communicating effectively at work or building a professional online presence, to practical maths and boosting digital skills. With a range of course available, there is something suited to everyone.
The Skills Toolkit features more than 70 courses designed by organisations including Amazon Web Services, Cisco, FutureLearn, Lloyds Bank, LinkedIn Learning and Microsoft, The Open University and many more, and aims to help boost the UK economy as it recovers from the impact of COVID-19 as part of the Government’s Plan for Jobs. Whether you are looking for a new role, furloughed or using your out of hours to consider a new career, these courses are a great way to take the first steps towards change.
Please help us encourage more people to take An Hour to Skill by sharing with your networks and spreading the word.

And for the youth, while school continues remotely, activities are harder to come by but Sporting Communities CIC has a wealth of goodies for anybody stuck at home and looking for something to do, the group will set up their sporting activities again as soon as it is safe.
