About this opportunity
In this free course, you will learn what it means to be a Digital Mentor. This course will help you to support people through their first steps to using computers and the internet, and improve their digital skills. You'll learn about the language and techniques needed to support someone, and the possible barriers that people who are new to the internet can experience.
This course will also help you to develop the skills and confidence you need to support people on a one-to-one basis, as well as helping small groups. There are no requirements to become a Digital Mentor but we do expect that you have a basic understanding of technology.
