UK online centres - Partner news

8 November 2011

Welcome

Helen Milner

Get online week has once again proved a huge success and we’re really proud of everyone that took part. Last week I was lucky enough to spend time at several events around Sheffield and was so pleased to see the level of commitment from centre staff and volunteers as well as some very enthusiastic new learners.

One of my Get online week highlights was helping a new learner, Betty, get online at Sheffield Town Hall. Betty was feeling increasingly like part of an ‘invisible generation’ and knew that the internet was an exciting new way for her to engage with the world. She was very excited about being able to order her groceries from the comfort of her own home if bad weather returns this winter.

We’re really keen to hear your Get online week stories so do fill in our campaign survey and keep posting your pictures and stories on our Facebook page.

Finally, don’t forget that if you’re registered for the Online basics grants and took part in Get online week, each Online basics completion you achieve until the end of December is worth 45, so it’s a great time to make the most of all the hard work you put into engaging new learners during Get online week and get them back to your centre.

Best wishes

Helen Milner
Managing Director
UK online centres

Get online week

We’ re really pleased with how Get online week has gone and we’ve loved seeing the photos and stories you’ve been sending in and posting on our Facebook page. Please do keep them coming.

Now Get online week is over we’d like to ask all centres that took part to take a few minutes and fill in our survey. The survey is a really important way for you to tell us about your successes and let us know if there’s anything that we could do differently next time.

We’d especially like to hear about any volunteers that really shone during the campaign, any learner stories that really stood out, and also about any particularly unusual or exciting outreach venues or event themes.

You can find the survey here and we’ll be sharing the results and findings with you all as soon as possible.

Go ON Sheffield

Go ON Sheffield, a campaign which saw over 60 events take place in our home city last week, was a great success and really showed the variety of exciting locations events can be held.

From pubs and bingo halls to schools and the Town Hall, the UK online centres team, with staff and volunteers from local centres, broadband supplier Plusnet and Sheffield University worked with new learners at some fantastic venues to try and reach as many of Sheffield’s 90,000 offliners as possible.

You can check out Helen’s blog to see what some members of the UK online centres’ team were up to last week and the Go ON Sheffield Facebook page for some great photos from the events.

Preparing to support learners in the ICT Sector

This month will see the launch of a brand new UK online centres training course.

‘Preparing to support learners in the ICT Sector’ is the third of our modules aimed at individuals who are new to supporting people to get online. It’s ideal for staff or volunteers who will be assisting tutors during one to one or group sessions in UK online centres, or those who will be leading the sessions themselves.

Our first session is on Friday 18 November and you can find out more and book your place on the session here.

Britain in a day

On Saturday 12 November you’ve got a chance to show off your centre’s great work on TV and be part of a BBC documentary!

‘Britain in a Day’ is a BBC project to create a documentary showing a unique portrait of twenty-four hours in the life of the UK by collecting film footage from people all around the nation, and we’re really keen for you to take part.

All you’ll need to do is film the activity taking place in your centre on Saturday 12 November on video camera, flip cam or even your mobile phone. There’s no need to edit it, and there’s no need to add music or effects.

Please email ukonlinecentres@ufi.com if your centre is interested in taking part and we’ll send you all the information you need.
