From the 7th of November to the 28th of November, The Khayelitsha Bandwidth Barn hosted a fully-funded Digital Literacy Programme focusing on upskilling young people in Khayelitsha and its surrounding areas by providing basic computer and digital skills.
Participants attended a mini career expo, where they heard from College of Cape Town, False Bay College, and SARS guest speakers as well as a two-hour Financial Literacy lesson and, received certificates of attendance on completion of the session.
Bhekamange Mntumtum said she is working hard on honing her basic admin skills as she searches for her next job opportunity. She is looking forward to adding her new skills to her CV.
“My experience throughout the Digital Citizen Literacy Programme was a very good one, from understanding a computer, the basics and better use of computer skills to help make it easier for me to hunt for jobs and create documents, CVs, etc,” she said.
The programme covered more than 10 modules, with topics such as introduction to computers, computer basics, and online safety – password and security to help students better learn how to use a computer, use Microsoft Office programmes, create a CV, and build basic admin skills.
