Digital Skills Training Modules

The Digital Skills Training Programme offers trainings in six areas;

  • Innovation - Come up with your next big idea and prototype it

  • Artificial Intelligence - Understand the foundational concepts of AI and how it works

This programme is underpinned by the Freeformers Future Workforce Model. Developed by Freeformers with support from the EDUCATE team at University College London, the model is based on primary research (from clients and learners), and extensive secondary research.


The model seeks to understand what employers want, what citizens need and bridge any gaps between the two. Accompanying each attribute in the model is learning material and question sets to allow learners to measure their progress as they move through the programme. This builds confidence in participants so that they can transition from “learning to earning.”
