It’s definitely game-changing for us. It gives people the ability to get familiar with technology, to get involved with it.

Why does digital literacy matter to Auckland’s Pacific people?
COVID-19 has made Auckland’s entrenched inequities worse for those in the workforce, including access to technology and the internet. In Auckland, 49 per cent of Pacific peoples live in local board areas where household internet access is 83.5 per cent or less on average, compared to Auckland's overall average of 90.6 per cent (2). Empowering people to get online, use technology safely and securely, and pass this knowledge on through their aiga is important to help people be resilient and ready for the future of work.

Future Ready: Life Online is part of a four-year, MBIE-funded programme to help upskill Auckland’s Pacific workforce so people have the skills and knowledge to adapt to the future of work and the economic impacts of COVID-19.
