Spark15 is launching a digital literacy course in July that is aimed at giving digital literacy training to refugee youth.
For refugees, digital literacy is a must, as they increasingly depend on technology to keep in touch with friends and families at home, and access information, education and job opportunities. Such skills are also vital to ensure refugees’ employability in most sectors of the economy.
The basic digital literacy courses will include, among other topics, using the internet and productivity programs (such as Word, Excel, etc.), security and privacy, and using social media.
The course will be free and start in July. They will be held at the University of Malta in the evenings once a week. Each course will have 12 classes in total (3 months) and participants will be given a certificate at the end of the course.
Advanced digital literacy course will start in October and run till the end of the year.
This course is now closed.
