1 Manuela's progression through the course

Figure 1 Manuela

Since starting the course, Manuela has noticed a great improvement in her confidence online. She has recognised that what she has learned will have a great impact on her career and home life.

Manuela now keeps an eye on her digital footprint and feels more confident about being able to improve it.

To help her in her career, Manuela has learned how to harness social media to showcase her professional skills, knowledge and experience. She plans to use LinkedIn to do this and to connect with a wider community. She has set up Twitter account to keep up to date with the motor sport industry and she has started writing a blog.

At the beginning of the course, Manuela felt vulnerable online, particularly when it came to providing personal or financial information. Knowing how to assess who or what to trust, and understanding what she can do to protect herself, has improved her confidence. She now uses strong passwords and she learned how to protect her computer from viruses.

When she searched online, Manuela used to feel quite overwhelmed with the amount of information available. This course has taught her how to search more effectively and filter information. This has been invaluable when she’s been searching for jobs in the motorsport industry.
