Telecentre.org Foundation, under its Telecentre Women Program, is pleased to announce the opening of a new online course on Digital Literacy for Women and Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship. It will run from November 14-30.

The course is aimed at providing women and youth the necessary skills to enable them to engage in employment, entrepreneurship, and lifelong learning so they can stay competitive amidst rapid changes. It will be a Training of Trainers (ToT) type of course where participants will also learn how to teach the content to the learners for whom this course was designed and developed, the women and youth, both in the online and face-to-face modes.

The course is open to anyone who meets the following requirements:
- Has good access to the Internet; and
- Is able to devote at least 3 hours a day (or 10 hours a week) for a total learning time of 48 hours.

A Certificate of Trainer Course Completion will be issued to those who will be able to complete all the requirements of the course.

Developed with the support of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and to be implemented in partnership with the Philippine Community eCenter Network (PhilCeCNet), the online course will be delivered in the blended online mode, a combination of synchronous online sessions and online interactions through social media.

Interested parties may contact our Telecentre Women Program Manager, Ms. Maria Teresa Camba, at tcamba@telecentre.org for slot confirmation before November 14. For more info about the course, check out the course description.
