Corsham Institute is a not for profit delivering a fair and inclusive digital future for all.
We deliver programmes to excite, retrain and upskill people for the digital economy. We conduct research to find solutions to issues surrounding the digital economy such as trust, accessibility and diversity. We work with communities to highlight the opportunities that digital technology has to offer, and provide support and guidance to develop digital skills and literacy.
We conduct applied research to gain a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges afforded by the digital age.
Unlike many other organisations, we don’t focus solely on either research or action - we do both. We carry out both primary and secondary research and involve potential beneficiaries in our work from the beginning. That way, when we run our programmes we know they have been user-designed and we are able to monitor and evaluate their effectiveness. We always work with long term systemic solutions in mind.
We work to inspire and engage people from all ages and backgrounds to ensure that nobody is left behind in our rapidly developing digital world.
To do this, we deliver a number of learning opportunities and training courses based around the regional digital skill shortages we have identified in our research.
