The first group of successful participants in the Angus Digital Skills Academy has been presented with certificates recognising their achievements.

The academy offers participants a range of opportunities to develop their digital and employability skills.

In the first two months of the course 36 people completed the programme and all have secured accreditation for one or more of the awards on offer.

The presentation was made at Arbroath Library by Donald Morrison, Angus Council’s convener of communities.

Councillor Morrison said: “I would like to congratulate all those who have successfully taken part in the skills academy for their achievements.

“I am delighted that the council has worked in partnership with Jobcentre Plus to support job seekers to develop the skills and confidence they need to support them in their efforts to progress into employment.

“Each of the partners brings something different and complementary to the programme, drawing on their specific organisational skills and expertise.

“Feedback from participants about their learning experience has been very positive and there are early signs that the programme is helping people back in to work, which is one of its primary goals.”

The programme is jointly funded by Angus Council and Jobcentre Plus through the Flexible Support Fund, which is designed to support partnership and innovation in the employability and employment fields.
