Opportunity Description

Could you make a difference as a volunteer Digital Champion?

We are looking for people with a good understanding of how to use computer to give peer support to people who are new to computers. You will help them to do things like:

Teaching someone to use Google
Helping someone set up an email account
Helping people use word to write a CV
Setting someone up on Skype
Showing someone how to use job search websites

You need a good level of basic computer skills, but you don't have to be an IT genius. Much more important is having enthusiasm and patience to spend some time helping others to get online. This project works especially with mental health service users. You would need to be sensitive to this. 

In return you’ll get:

The opportunity to develop your own skills and knowledge about digital technology
Free accredited online training so you know better how to work with others and what sort of things you could teach them
The chance to part of a community of Champions who can help each other and share ideas
Ongoing support from a dedicated mentor
Rewards and awards! You’ll receive a Certificate and an online Open Badge for each Digital Champion course you complete – you can put it on your CV and show others what you’ve done.
A free DBS check and payment for travel expenses
Immense satisfaction that you’ve made a difference to someone else

Could you join the team?
