Digital Training Resources

Every week we will publish next weeks handout which will be used in most sessions. This should give you some time to look through any handouts before the session you are supporting. Scroll down to find this months theme. Contact the lead trainer for the session if you are not sure what week we are currently on.

We are keen to support all our digital volunteers to support people in the most effective way possible. All our volunteers use the Learn My Way training programme created by The Good Things Foundation.

During December, we are looking at festively themed sessions and the first week is on how can make sure we don’t have too much Christmas spirit.
