Humber College is now accepting applications for the Digital Fluency For The Workforce program. The summer cohort will take place in July 2021.
These digital fluency skills will enable participants to adapt to digital tools, manage digital information, and communicate effectively in digital spaces. The program also provides employment assistance and is focused on supporting newcomers, youth (ages 19-29), racialized peoples, and those who need to enhance their literacy & numeracy skills (often referred to as essential skills).
You will gain the following tangible digital skills:
- Digital Information Management
- Data Collection, Interpretation, Analysis

Participants will also earn up to 3 micro-credentials that are recognized & valued by employers.

Prior to the training, participants will be pre-assessed and will then be placed into a specific micro-credential, depending on their current level of digital fluency.
Upon completing the program, they will learn how to effectively use devices, software, and the internet in order to successfully transition to the workforce.
