About the IT Skills Pathway

The IT Skills Pathway provides access to quality assured, customisable learning and assessment products from basic digital literacy and skills through to more advanced Microsoft Office products. It has been developed to provide an officially recognised route of learning for the whole workforce.

Its purpose is to encourage everyone working with IT to review their current IT skills and knowledge against recognised standards, determine what their skill gaps are and then identify their current and future training requirements based on the products that are available.

Please note that the IT Skills Pathway is delivered by our partner work area (Digital Learning Solutions) and uses a separate system from HEE elearning for healthcare. We are signposting this useful resource to anyone who is looking for IT skills training.
