Mentor Post - Digital Confidence-Building Course
We are launching our NEW Bourne Digital 12-week online Digital Confidence-Building course!
Includes laptop loan and mobile data for the duration of the programme
Over the last few months, we have been putting together our new online programme, and I am pleased to announce we are now able to begin recruitment. The first course date is the 3 Aug, and there will be 11 more online lessons every Monday after that.
Each lesson will be 1 hour 30 minutes long and based on www.learnmyway.com resources. We will also have some guest speakers who will be experts on various topics e.g. wellbeing, further learning opportunities etc, these are still to be confirmed.
One of the reasons our online course Is so unique, is the fact that we can loan clients a laptop and data for the duration of the course. Based on our earlier experiences pre-lockdown we know that a lot of our clients did not have devices at home, and it is also something that has been highlighted in the press recently due to the lockdown and isolation. It is important for us to reach those people and give them the digital skills they need to improve their employability and wellbeing.
Throughout the 12-week course you will learn such things as:
- Getting to know your computer, mouse, and keyboard
- How to use email
- Create Word documents
- How to keep safe online
- And much more!
Clients will not just be supported by Sarah and I, clients will also have the support of our Digital Champions, who are all volunteers. Their role is to check in with clients weekly and offer any additional support or advice everyone might need.
This is an exciting time for the Bourne Digital team, and we are now looking for clients. If you are 19+, live in Bournemouth (BH1 –BH11) unemployed, and looking for work or underemployed and have the right to live and work in the UK, we would like to hear from you.
You can contact us by calling 01202 677557 to arrange an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you.
Before you are accepted on the course you will also be asked to take part in a phone assessment, to assess your suitability for the programme.
