Colaiste Iosagain, Portarlington , Participates in National Senior Citizens’I.T. Community Programme

Following on from last year’s successful class where eleven ‘mature students’ received their certificates, Colaiste Iosagain , Portarlington , is looking for volunteers to participate in a programme designed to ‘buddy up’ a participating Transition Year student with an older person from their community to share skills with each other.The programme will commence on November Fourth at 11.15 am and run for 6 weeks.
Modules within the programme will enable the student to learn practical IT skills including the use of the Internet for common tasks. The one-to-one aspect of the training will enable the students to tailor the training to suit each older person’s needs.
This eight module programme will take the older person’s initial skill level, learning pace, interests and hobbies into account and aims to build their confidence and have fun , surfing the net, booking holidays and organising their finances from the comfort of their own home.
Anyone interested in participating in the programme should contact the school on 057 8623407 , who would be delighted to hear from you.
