Community Connected is looking for volunteers to support us in our digital inclusion work in Kingston - an exciting grassroots training programme to help residents access NHS Digital Services.
This project's aim is to train small groups of residents with few digital skills (maximum 6 people). We are training our learners to use tablets (and/or their own smartphone) to find information online and we are looking for digital champions who can work one-to-one with a learner on this short course.
- where to access and research health conditions
- how to register with their GP to book appointments online
- which apps might help manage long term health conditions
As a volunteer you will be work with other volunteers supporting other learners and our trainer - Philippa Leary to deliver an engaging, relaxed training session. We are using voice assistants to help deliver some of the simple searching results - Go Google, Siri, and Alexa.
So there is going to be all sorts of fun and games getting everything to work properly, which is part and parcel of the experience of working for Community Connected.
In return for providing us with your valuable time, we can offer you
- An exciting, rewarding volunteering opportunity
- Accredited Training - with the opportunity to gain recognised accreditation for your participation and access to100s of training resources on the Digital Champions Network
- A new set of highly employable skills
