Digital, numeracy and employability skills are among those that are most sought after by employers, and can help you progress in work and boost your job prospects. Digital skills can be anything from using social media and staying safe online to coding, programming or digital marketing.

These are a small selection of free courses to boost your skills from The Open University. Many others are available by exploring OpenLearn.

You might like to visit The Skills Toolkit from the National Careers Service, where you can find many more courses to help you learn new skills or change jobs. Once you’ve finished studying, the National Careers Service can help you decide your next steps.
