Angus Digital Skills Academy (ADSA)

The Angus Digital Skills Academy (ADSA) programme can help you to develop the skills you need to use computers with confidence. 

Having these skills will allow you to explore job options and opportunities online, help you prepare for the digital requirements of Universal Credit and make better use of IT in your home life, at work and in your community.

In this short programme you will learn how to:

  • turn on a computer if you haven't done this before
  • create documents such as CVs and job applications
  • set up and use email
  • get online and surf the internet
  • fill in forms online
  • explore learning and job opportunities online

There's also the opportunity to gain a national qualification that recognises your new skills in using IT and seeking employment.

At the end of the short programme you can get advice on further learning or seeking work.

The Angus Digital Skills Academy operates in Arbroath, Forfar and Montrose. People from other burghs are welcome to attend any of these sessions. It is a free programme open to people who are receiving benefits or are actively job seeking.

For more information on the Angus Digital Skills Academy, you can speak to your Jobcentre work coach, your key worker, or you can contact one of our communities officers on 01307 473662.
