Digital Skills Fife

dsf-logoIncreasing numbers of people in Fife are being adversely affected by not having access to the online skills they need to use the Internet in their everyday lives. This is a disadvantage to them in terms of access to jobs (90% are now advertised online) and being able to complete Universal Job Match for benefit claim purposes.  The latest  Fife Household Survey shows that 29 percent of people in Fife do not regularly use the internet. 

In line with CLD strategy this project will contribute to:

  • promoting digital participation across Fife specifically targeting those who need support to get online and use online services, (Adult Learning Partnership)
  • increasing the number of people in Fife who regularly use and benefit from using the internet, (Fife Digital Participation Strategy)
  • reducing the number of job seekers in Fife with no or low digital skills, (Fife Economic Strategy)

  1. Increase the numbers of people with the online skills to use DWP universal job match and e-mail
