* Do you enjoy using digital technology for example, email and the internet?

Then why not become a Digital Champion?
These days having the skills to use digital technology is a must-have. It can save people time and money, make people feel more connected and better informed. Despite this, millions of people have never been online.
We are looking for people with a good understanding of how to use computer to give peer support to people who are new to computers. You will do things like help them to:
- use Google
- set up an email account
- use word to write a CV
- use job search websites
In return you’ll get:
• The opportunity to develop your own skills and knowledge about digital technology
• Free online training so you know better how to work with others and what sort of things you could teach them
• The chance to part of a community of Champions who can help each other and share ideas
• Rewards and awards! You’ll receive a Certificate and an online Open Badge for each Digital Champion course you complete – you can put it on your CV and show others what you’ve done.
• Immense satisfaction that you’ve made a difference to someone else

You need a
good level of basic computer skills, but you don't have to be an IT genius.
Much more important is having enthusiasm and patience to spend some time
helping others to get online.
