Successful DigiPlace4all training sessions

DigiPlace4all Belgium We are glad to announce the successful usage of the Digiplace4all portal by our user community.

Furthermore, the traditional model of delivering digital literacy skills to people with disabilities through the provision of centre-based training is becoming unsustainable, due to a massive increase in the demand for digital skills and rapid changes in online and mobile technologies.
