Support offered to jobseekers lacking ICT skills
There are a number of schemes open to jobseekers who are not competent computer users, it has been suggested.

In fact, a cabinet committee has been created to address the digital divide in the UK, director for adults and lifelong learning at the Learning and Skills Council Jon Gamble and communications manager for UK Online Centres Abigail Stevens have said.

The duo stated that there are 6,000 UK Online Centres around the country that are geared towards closing the digital gap.

Furthermore, courses are available to beginners and those who want to imrove their ICT skills, they commented in a joint statement.

"The Learning and Skills Council continues to invest millions of pounds each year in funding to support a wide range of IT courses for adults," the pair said.

However, it was revealed this week by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education that fewer adults are interested in undertaking more learning.
