Adults In Scotland Given Money To Learn Computers
Here is something a little on the weird side. I can understand that communities in the world want to make sure their people understand technology, but this program is a bit beyond that.
Every adult in Scotland is being offered up to £100 to develop and improve their computer skills.
The funding forms part of a Scottish Executive drive to extend learning.
The Individual Learning Account (ILA) Scotland scheme offers low income learners up to £200 a year for courses to help them get back into work.
This has now been extended to provide funding of up to £100 a year for basic information technology training to everyone in Scotland over 18.
I wish I was getting $175 US to learn computers every year.
