Helping Families By Teaching IT Employment Skills

By Ric Poolman & Marcus Fey | Project Director & CFO

FCF's DigiServe project has an Academy Plus program that enables adults to learn new IT skills through on-the-job training and experience in order to be successful in both work and life. They created a fully self-paced course for IT Fundamentals that was launched in December. Over 20 students have taken the course so far and they've already added two new courses; a Photoshop course and a programming Boot Camp course.

During this Covid era, the DigiServe team wanted to help people who lost thier jobs and were intested in transitioning to the IT industry. The ITF course allows the trainees to discover their own potential in IT, leading to an understanding of basic IT tasks such as building a computer, connecting devices (networking), writing websites and apps, and protecting computers from IT crimes and viruses. These courses may lead them to future work, whether it's working in an IT job that hasn't been done before, adjusting positions, raising salaries, or even transferring knowledge to others; especially family members.

As examples, Mr James and Mr Tony were unemployed due to Covid. Mr. James found a job in web development after training in an ITF course with us. He worked for just over 2 months at his new job before he was promoted to supervisor, received additional salary, and began to lead his own team. After taking the ITF course, Mr Tony also found a job in IT networking. In addtion to helping people undertand IT, DigiServe is also trying to recruit trainees to help increase their capacity to provide ongoing Children's Homes apps and IT training to go along with those services.
