Includes laptop loan and mobile data for the duration of the programme.

We are excited to announce our August 2020 course is now full!!

Thank you so much to everyone who has shared information about the project or has refereed clients to us. This is a great start to a new venture.

Thank you very much to Ansbury Guidance for donating 4 devices and to Skills & Learning for formatting all our Bourne Digital devices!

We would also like to welcome the Citizens Advice Bureau onboard who will be adding their Money Talk expertise to our course and answering any questions around the topic of money. We have also just manged to secure the service of the Dorset Police Cyber Crime Unit who will be answering your questions around the subjects of passwords, phishing emails and more. Not forgetting Skills and Learning who will be joining us in week 10 to talk about their service and how they can help find you a job.

The Routes to Inclusion team have successfully recruited 3 volunteer Digital Champions to support the Bourne Digital project, we are really looking forward to welcoming them to the project and making the most of their expertise!

We are now able to start recruiting for our September 12-week online Digital Confidence-Building Course. We are expecting it to be just as popular as August, so if you are interested in finding out more please get in contact at once to secure a place.

One of the main reasons our course stands out, is the fact we are able to loan laptops and provide mobile data for the duration of the 12-week course, for those that do not own them, and so far, we have had some great feedback based on this. In addition, each client will have plenty of 1:1 support not just from the Bourne Digital Mentors but also from our new volunteer Digital Champions.

Here is a recap of who the course is for and how we can help.

You must:

  • Live in Bournemouth (BH1-BH11)
  • Aged 19+
  • Unemployed, and looking for work or underemployed and have the right to live and work in the UK
  • Have no or exceptionally low digital skills and no digital device at home*.

*We can support clients who have low digital skills but do have a device, however, priority is given to those without a device.

More about the course

Our online course is delivered weekly in small, relaxed, and friendly online group settings, with the focus on building our clients’ digital self-esteem, confidence, and to support them to achieve their digital goals.

The September course starts on Tuesday 1st Sept and there will be a further 11 online weekly sessions each Tuesday following the first session.

Each individual online session will include a different topic, beginning with the very the basics of getting to know your computer, mouse, and keyboard; working up to how to use email, create Word documents and much more.

Clients will also be supported throughout their learning journey by our knowledgeable Digital Champions.
