Event description

Description

This free training offer is part of the Big Lottery Fund project Online Today and is being provided by RNIB Cymru.

The training will equip staff, volunteers and professionals working within the community with the knowledge, confidence and understanding to help people with sight loss access the benefits of being online and show them that, despite sight loss, partially sighted and blind people can access, use and enjoy all aspects of the internet too.

That could include using skype to contact loved ones and help combat loneliness, getting better deals on utility bills to help stretch limited budgets or doing grocery shopping on line.

The training will be available from January to June 2018.

Please book your preferred date/location and session(s):

Session 1: A half day’s training to build basic knowledge of how people with sight loss can get online and help you feel more confident about talking about their options

Session 2: A half day’s training to complement session 1 so you will be able to give basic demonstrations of accessibility functions

Please note, you can book for either Session 1 or 2, or both and have the option to do them on the same day or different days. However, there must be separate bookings for each session.
