The project comprises two IT computer courses: Getting Started in IT - SCQF level 3 and Moving on in IT-SCQF level 4, both accredited certificates, designed with a focus on the following groups: mainstream residents, older people, people in recovery from mental ill health and people from Black Minority and Ethnic cultural backgrounds.
I.T. and Biscuits promotes the personal and education growth and active citizenship of a number of local, disadvantaged and socially excluded people, including some who felt that learning was not for them. Enhancing the confidence, self-esteem and skills of participants and improving the chances of those most in need of support, the project helped combat the issues related to serious levels of multi-deprivation evident in the area.
