Our Healthcare Support students were delighted to collaborate with Age Action this semester through the Care of the Older Person module.
As part of the fight against digital exclusion, students provided training to older people completing the 'Getting Started Computer Training programme' and facilitated one to one workshops on computers, tablets and smartphones.
This is a fantastic initiative which allows older people to learn new skills while socialising with others. It also provided an opportunity for our students, many of whom, hope to pursue a career working with older people, to gain invaluable practical experience.
A huge well done to all involved.
