Digital Skills

Digital skills are key skills that students need to thrive in the modern world. At Franklin, students should have the opportunity to develop these skills, alongside softer skills, both as part of the curriculum and through Skills @Franklin activities.

Digital skills are in demand across the UK and are required in at least 82% of online advertised jobs.

Digital skills are becoming near-universal requirements for employment.

Baseline digital skills such as Microsoft Office and other productivity software tools are commonly required in jobs across all skill levels.

The move up the career ladder from low- to high-skill jobs comes with increased demand for specific digital skills.

That’s precisely why we’re equipping students with the digital skills they need to succeed in the modern workplace.
