Get Online

Most jobs are advertised via the internet and an online application is usually required.

Most jobs require some computer skills.

Furthermore, when you start claiming Universal Credit you will need to make your initial claim online, you will also need to regularly review and action your online journal.

Computer skills are therefore becoming increasingly important and we want Ocean tenants to have the skills and access to be able to take advantage of this.

Learning how to use a computer is easy and there are lots of free resources in Cornwall to help you to get to grips with this.

Try ‘Learn My Way’ which takes you through computer skills from basics to more advanced, step by step.
