We are now recruiting for December 2020
Last few remaining spaces on our November programme – contact us before Friday 23rd October to enrol.
As we head into the final stretch of the year, we are now looking to recruit 6-8 new clients to join the December intake of the Bourne Digital 12-week online confidence building course, inductions for which will be held towards the end of November at Bournemouth library.
As our first set of client’s time on the programme draws to a close, we are busy preparing certificates of completion and making final preparations for signposting and referring our clients onto our partner organisations to further their learning journey.
In Next month’s newsletter, we will share photos and case studies to celebrate their journey.
In other news, we have added a new guest speaker into the mix. Frances Miles, Co-Director of the Job Shop UK, who are based in Bournemouth, will be sharing interview and recruitment tips with our 12-week course clients.
One of our major recent successes, was the involvement of a Bourne Digital client, Martin, at the Digital Leaders week Festival of the Future, in which he spoke openly about how Bourne Digital and his Digital Champion has helped him gain digital confidence and feel more fulfilled life in general.
Martin’s talk was inspirational and received some amazing comments from the audience:
‘Such an interesting and inspiring session. Thank you’
‘Brilliant scheme giving those who need the step up to get started, Martin's confidence is shining through which is fantastic to see.’
‘...It was great to hear your story, how wonderful that this has made such a difference to your life. thanks for sharing it with us.’
