We are requesting information and seeing if training providers would be interested in quoting for organising running and delivering Basic Digital Training for Mobile Business Applications training, to various departments/service areas of Cambridge City Council

The main aims and objectives of the Training are:
• To build skills that will enable business applications systems, such as Alloy to be rolled out and adopted by services and teams at Cambridge City Council.
• To build general ICT skills within teams to assist with adoption of electronic payslips, holiday booking and other corporate services
• For skills to be improved to help in wider life outside of work (the digital divide) so the training is of mutual benefit for all (examples - home banking and payment of utility bills, assisting to move off standard tariffs by USwitch - saving money, applying for benefits, use of other sites such as Homelink or potentially shopping such as Amazon, entertainment/use of videos to resolve issues such as on You Tube)
Delivery of a training programme that meets the aims and objectives through the use of mobile phones and/or laptops.

If you/your organisation are interested in this opportunity please submit an interest by response that outlines who you/your organisation is and experience of delivery similar programmes of training.

Following the register of interest we will circulate a request for quote to companies who have registered an interest and who we feel fulfil our criteria in late July or early August.
