A free lunch does exist: £100 for all to learn IT skills

The Scottish Executive have announced an extension to their current funding of £200 for low-income individuals to learn technology skills.

And in the classroom...
Now, any adult in Scotland can receive £100 towards the cost of training in basic technology skills. This is good news for teachers who feel that they "can't even find the 'on' button" or who don't know their double-click from their copy-and-paste. It would provide an ideal complement to the budgets already available in schools and nationally for ICT training. Will school managers remember to market this in the new term?
