Digital Learners Flyer – Free one to one training opportunity

1:1 training is offered for 1 hour per week over a period of four to six weeks at a local library to include the following topics:

• Navigating the internet
• Creating an email address
• Learning how to send and reply to emails
• An overview of social networks e.g. the opportunity to create a Facebook or Twitter account
• Safety tips when using the internet and email
• Completing online forms

If you are interested in improving your digital skills, then we would love to hear from you. We believe that there are many in our community who are not given the opportunity to gain digital skills, coupled with feeling a sense of isolation that would benefit greatly from digital inclusion. The programme will run for 4 to 6 six weeks for 1 hour per week with an individual digital trainer.

Please contact Sarah, Jan or Christine to discuss this volunteer opportunity either by telephoning 0208 303 8932 Option 1 or email
