Event description

Description

Ageing Well Torbay and Positive People are collaborating together, to offer a free course on IT training for all skill levels, to help anyone in Torbay over fifty, who would like to learn more about using devices such as computers, laptops, tablets, phones, etc. (assistance picking and ordering one of these devices, if you don't currently own one, will be available)

Hot drinks and cake provided.

This modular course covers all abilities from turning on a computer for the first time to setting up an online business. As part of this support, we will be running a series of workshops to help anyone over fifty to get up to date with digital.

These workshops include everything from Essential Digital Skills, Communicating Online, Online Safety and Social Media, as well as some more creative workshops around Scrapbooking, Blogging and Photo Editing. Starting in the new year, the workshops will be 2 half day sessions over a series of 5 weeks. If you want to come and find out more, you can attend our drop-in sign-up session on January 18th 2019, where you can get an insight into the workshops, meet our training team and enjoy some free cake!

We will complete a short assessment with you to see if you need any devices/equipment e.g. tablet, Alexa, phone, etc. that you might need to help you to complete your course. At the end of the course you will successfully use and keep the devices you have been learning on.

Positive People offers lifeline to people who are not in work to build hope, confidence and skills. Positive People is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery, through the Big Lottery Fund. Ageing Well Torbay is a six-year, Big Lottery-funded project, aiming to reduce loneliness and social isolation experienced by people over fifty living in Torbay. Through the funding we can offer digital support to individuals on the project.
