The Good Things Foundation is making grants of between £1,250 and £15,000 available to organisations who are members of the Online Centres Network to deliver the Make It Click programme. The programme aims to help working-age adults learn the necessary digital skills they need to progress in employment or find a new job. The programme is aimed at people who already have a limited use of computers and the internet who would like to increase their skills.
The Foundation are encouraging applications from organisations that can support learners who wish to progress in employment or find a new job; those who are socially excluded, or those who run small businesses. Successful organisations will need to deliver a programme of tailored support that engages learners, assesses their skills gaps and provides face-to-face and online support.
Learners can be supported in a group setting or on a one-to-one basis. Delivery for this round of funding runs from 1st May 2020 to 30th April 2021, and the Foundation is offering five contract sizes: £1,250, £2,500, £5,000, £10,000 or £15,000.
The closing date for applications is 5pm on the 27th March 2020.
