The IT training department at Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Trust is offering staff who don't use computers in their daily jobs a chance to brush up their IT skills with an eight-week evening course. So far, 156 candidates have registered for the Getting Started course, including four catering assistants. The course gives delegates skills required to work through the online material, before moving on to teach them the electronic-mail module of the ECDL qualification. Staff are then free to continue to take the other modules that make up the qualification.
