Frank Holland – Startpoint Coffee Shop
Frank Holland

Frank previously attended the 10 week course at Russell Gardens in Heaton Norris. Frank is a residents of Russell Gardens and therefore the sessions there were convenient for him so he thought that he may as well give it a go. Frank learnt a lot over the 10 week period and didn’t want to stop learning so asked if he could attend one of the local drop in sessions. He now attends the sessions facilitated by Julie at Startpoint where he is learning more about how to use the iPad, he’s even dragged some of his friends from the sheltered accommodation scheme with him!

“I was really gutted that the sessions at our scheme came to an end because I had become hooked. I know that technology is part of everything we do so I need to keep up to date. It’s been brilliant that I have been able to use the laptops, but also the iPads when using the internet. It’s the ideal opportunity to work out which suits you best. I have decided that the iPad is best for me and I am looking forward to the internet security module which I will be completing soon. I like being able to come here with the others from Russell Gardens, we share a car and have a good morning!”
