IT Community Champions is a project which provides IT training to people aged 50 and over throughout Nottinghamshire.The project recruits and co-ordinates volunteer IT Trainers, giving them training and support to enable them to use their skills to train others. Training is delivered to small groups of people on a ratio of three/four learners to one volunteer tutor.
The sympathetic and instructive support that IT Community Champions offer is essential in breaking down barriers and challenges preconceptions to prove that age is no obstacle to learning IT skills.
The training sessions offer learners a six-week programme covering basic IT skills. To support this training, learners are also issued with a learning pack to guide them through the learning process.
Training is delivered locally to learners, free of charge, in venues such as libraries, IT suites, schools and resource centres.
The training courses delivered by IT Community Champions are structured in such a way that the complete IT beginner should be confident post-training in surfing the internet and be able to perform interactive tasks on the computer, access health and government web sites and be able to send and receive emails including attachments, such as CVs.
