University Solutions

For students intent on obtaining meaningful employment and universities anxious to demonstrate that the courses they offer deliver meaningful career outcomes core digital skills are not just desirable they are essential.

In the current generation of ‘digital natives” high levels of digital confidence does not translate to high levels of digital competence.  Many students simply do not have the core digital skills to effectively use the basic “digital tools of trade” required to enable advanced learning.

  • Commerce, engineering or science students unable to use key applications like Microsoft Excel proficiently.
  • Arts students who struggle to use the necessary functionality of Microsoft Word to deliver academically acceptable documents.
  • Design students who fail to realise their potential or deliver project assignments because they have insufficient skills with Adobe Creative Suite applications.
  • Architecture, science and engineering students struggle to translate their creative abilities into reality because they are Autodesk inadequate or
  • IT students lack validated evidence of practical skills to show prospective employers looking to start graduates as practitioners with a view to future “C Level” positions
