Learn with Coursera

The South East Digital Skills Partnership partnered with Coursera to provide free, online learning to individuals across the South East, until the end of January 2021.​

We worked with the team at Coursera to afford residents the opportunity to enrol to learning programs on the platform, prior to the end of October 2020, at no cost.

Individuals were able to then go on and complete their chosen courses before the end of January 2021, again at no cost. We’re delighted to have seen over 1600 enrolments to Coursera courses and qualifications, and more than 150 completed qualifications already, with lots more to come!
