The Earlsdon sessions are run like a drop-in session rather than a one-on-one lesson, meaning that you work with someone different each week and you could potentially work with mulitple people in a single session! The benefit of these sessions is that you'll get the opportunity to help with more specific queries. Like all of our sessions, basic knowledge of technology is all that is required - if you can use your smart phone you can teach someone to use their own!
These sessions are bi-weekly and we ask that you commit to at least two sessions per term (but these do not necessarily need to be consecutive weeks). Sign up for term one is now closed, however you can still register your interest in CGN: Retired Rewired projects here.
Amy is the Project Leader for the Earlsdon Sessions. If you have any queries or would like to find out more about volunteering at our Earlsdon sessions (or any of the other CGN: Retired Rewired sessions) please email cgnretiredrewired at warwick dot ac dot uk
