Sue Brushettsuebrushett@gmail.comRetired College IT Tutor/Co-ordinatorBeing introduced to and learning new software and techniques over and above those required for the training I do has given me the confidence to tackle any issues which arise. 1-Produced a set of introductory training objectives for the internet and email which has proved useful for all clients, beginners to experienced. 2-Assisted clients in using iPad, PC, Apple Mac and Library set-up for the umemployed and worked through training on same. 3-Signed up my own clients for the project which seems to be ongoing.What next? I do suggest 'Use of Library and Courses offered there', 'College Courses' and 'Pass clients onto Age Concern IT Project' when appropriate.

Taught clients about the benefits of Social Media from a position of strength in knowledge that i did not possess previously. 3. Had regular contact with fellow sudents across North Wales thus benefitting from the 'team ethic' inspired on the course.The main barrier is the lack of understanding at organisation level that stops staff and volunteers referring people through to our training. Mel Salisbury has devised a course called PassITon that we are now using to engage with this key group.
