Quickline Partners with Engaging Education to Equip Students with Digital Skills

Quickline has launched an initiative to provide essential digital skills and knowledge to school and college students in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The company has teamed up with Engaging Education, a creative education specialist, to empower the next generation with digital skills.

Together, they have developed a comprehensive program of study that will be introduced in primary and secondary schools, as well as further education colleges across the communities served by Quickline. The program includes a series of engaging and interactive sessions covering topics such as cyber security, online safety, handling information, and device usage.

The initiative aims to address digital deprivation, the barriers to digital access, the importance of digital skills for all, and encourages women to explore technology roles. The program is designed to stimulate conversations about online safety and enhance safeguarding in schools.

Moreover, it intends to involve parents and caregivers in digital literacy alongside their children. Julie Holmes, Social Values Manager at Quickline, is one of the key figures delivering the new program.

Julian Chalk, Head of Engagement and Enablement at Quickline, stressed their commitment to supporting education in the communities they serve. He highlighted their belief that access to the digital world should serve as a gateway to knowledge, opportunity, and empowerment.

By equipping the next generation with these vital skills, Quickline aims to connect them not just to the internet but to a future filled with limitless possibilities.

The partnership with Engaging Education seeks to inspire and empower young people, encouraging them to pursue careers in technology. The first sessions will commence in primary schools after the October half-term break, with plans to extend the program to secondary schools and colleges.
