Become a Digital Champion with our Training!
Are you an organisation working with people in your community who are facing social exclusion? Perhaps older people, disabled people or those with low incomes. Do you want to help people to benefit from getting online by developing their essential digital skills?
We know that 1 in 5 people in Scotland are lacking essential digital skills and are missing out. From being able to access services, socialising, saving money, staying healthy to learning new things.
With your established and trusted relationships we know you’re well placed to help tackle this inequality.
Our Digital Champions Training offer
We can provide you with free training and access to Digital Unite’s Digital Champions Network to help your staff feel confident in supporting people facing digital exclusion. We’ll help to give you the skills to support your clients to get the most from being online. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a digital guru; it’s all about your people skills.
Through the Digital Champions Network you’ll get access to online training modules, learner guides and relevant resources. The One Digital Team will also provide face-to-face training along with follow up sessions and events to help support you.
Here’s what existing Digital Champions from One Digital have to say:
“It was really useful to have the opportunity to learn, share and think about how we can support each other and all reach more people.”
“Helping others to learn and use the internet for their own benefit is enormously satisfying and gives me a real boost.”
We can tailor our training topics where possible to best meet the needs of you and your clients. This could include topics such as accessibility, gaining employment, financial inclusion, health and wellbeing and communicating with friends and family.
Getting involved in our Digital Champions Training
