UK-wide Make it Click funding open
We are delighted to invite organisations of all sizes and from all parts of the UK to apply for between £1,250 and £15,000 of funding to deliver the Make It Click programme, delivered by Good Things Foundation in partnership with Google.org.
Over 7 million people in the UK only use the internet in a limited way. They are online but aren’t improving their digital skills. And compared to people who are not online at all, they are more likely to be seeking work or in low-paid employment.
Good Things Foundation, funded by is delivering Make It Click to help 30,000 of these individuals to gain the confidence and digital skills they need to thrive online - becoming regular, confident, capable and safe users of digital technology, achieving positive outcomes in life and work.
We’re encouraging applications from organisations that can support learners who wish to progress in employment or find a new job; those who are socially excluded, or those who run small businesses. Successful organisations will need to deliver a programme of tailored support that engages learners, assesses their skills gaps and provides face-to-face and online support.
Delivery for this round of funding runs from 1st May 2020 to 30th April 2021, and we are offering four contract sizes that Online Centres can apply for: £1,250, £2,500, £5,000, £10,000 or £15,000.
