Information and digital literacy

Information & digital literacy logo It is almost certain that you will use information and digital systems as part of your employment, so recruiters will have an expectation that you have a good level of knowledge and experience in this field.

In terms of IT skills, you should be able to use computers and software for tasks like word processing, presenting, research, retrieval and storage of information and for communicating, including social media.

You will also be expected to be digitally literate, i.e. have the ability to locate, organise, understand, evaluate and analyse information using digital technology, and have a working knowledge of current high-technology, and an understanding of how it can be used.
