Boost your digital skills with the giffgaff Academy

While we’re mostly still stuck indoors, it’s important to make use of this extra time we have. Mobile network giffgaff have launched their new giffgaff Academy. It’s the place to go if you want to increase you digital skills. You don’t have to be a giffgaff customer – just click over and watch the series of online videos.

The initiative comes as new research shows that two-thirds of the general public are “embarrassed” by huge gaps in their knowledge – blaming the choices they made while in education. Indeed, research from giffgaff shows that 25% of Brits would like to have learned how to master coding.

With 40% “embellishing” their CVs, the new online hub focuses on teaching digital skills. All lessons are free and have been created in partnership with influencers like Giles McMullen and Ania Kurbow. You can learn how to build a website or how to start coding – perhaps even begin making your own game.

With 64% of the population feeling “left behind” by rapidly advancing digital technology, it’s a great time to dive in and get back up to speed.

A giffgaff spokesperson told us..

The great thing about humans is, you’re never too old to learn a new skill or further hone the ones you’ve already got. At the moment we’ve all got a little bit more time on our hands and people are looking for new ways to fill that time. It’s the perfect opportunity to try out learning something new.

The giffgaff Academy is all about providing snackable, easy online content that people can dip in and out of when they have the time. They don’t need to commit to a new course to learn new skills.

Just head to to learn more.
