Learn to Support Others to Upskill in Technology: Free Training

Melton City Council will soon be launching a series of free, 6-hour ‘Digital Mentor’ training sessions for people in our community who’d like to share their technology knowledge with others!

WHAT IS A DIGITAL MENTOR?

A Digital Mentor is someone who is able to support others in the community to build their confidence and skills to use technology. Being a Digital Mentor is about inspiring people to try using digital technology and supporting them through their first steps using computers, mobile devices and the internet. Learn about this here.

Your knowledge could be as simple as how to turn on a computer and open a Word document or as complex as building a website or creating a Facebook page.

Delivery of your lessons to community are completely informal, no teaching experience is necessary. Digital Mentors are supported by Council officers and all devices and materials are supplied.

If you’d like to be involved in getting our community online, contact us for more information and to register your interest.
