The project offers personalized training sessions that cover essential digital skills, from basic device usage to online communication and accessing information. Volunteers play a pivotal role in this endeavour, as they are recruited and coordinated by Stay to offer patient guidance and support during the learning process. Through “Get Connected,” Stay telford and Telford and Wrekin council are working hand in hand to empower the older generation with the abilities and confidence to fully participate in today’s interconnected society, fostering a sense of inclusivity and independence
Digital Skills Volunteers Required
Stay in partnership with Telford and Wrekin Council are developing exciting new ways of engaging digitally excluded people in their “Get Connected” campaign. This is in the form of 2-hour sessions across the Telford and Wrekin area.
This is an exciting opportunity to work with a team to building up the digital skills of people who most need it to achieve the following:
· How to use a mobile device
· How to access the internet
· How to search and learn safely
You would work with session facilitators to support learners make the most of their devices during the session.
This is an excellent opportunity to be developed as a digital adviser and identify the most innovative ways of helping people learn. Also, you would expect to build a real track record in making a social impact on the digital world of Telford Residents.
