WORKERS on the 2012 Olympic site in East London have been invited to down tools’ and improve their computer skills.
They are getting the chance to sign up to free IT courses at the new Community & Trade Union Learning Centre opened in nearby Pudding Mill Lane in Stratford last week.
The centre for Olympics site workers and for the East End community offers courses in literacy, numeracy and computer skills as well as how to write reports and job applications.
UCATT construction workers union secretary Bob Blackman said: “Many construction workers don’t have a chance to use a computer when they spend most of the day with a shovel or trowel in their hands.”
