Resources

Many members of the Online Centres Network provide vital community services with very limited funding and resources. We want to do everything we can to help you reach the people you want to support and make your centre as productive and sustainable and possible.


We’ve brought together posters and leaflets appealing to a variety of learner audiences, toolkits and handbooks on delivering digital skills, financial literacy, ESOL classes, and much more.
 
You can also access the recordings of training webinars on improving your bid writing skills, building local partnerships and much much more.

 

 

These resources can help you reach out to job seekers, provide employability skills, form partnerships with your local Jobcentre Plus and more.

Disabled people can face additional barriers to getting online, but these resources can help you both reach out to this audience, and gain the skills and tools you need to fully support them.

Our aim is to support all libraries to provide the support their communities need, including access to the internet and help to gain the skills they need to use it. These resources can help libraries do just that.
