Getting booked in to see a Digital Champion

This calendar contains a list of every event where I will personally be offering my free services as a digital champion in Purbeck and Dorset. I will do my best to keep it up-to-date. At these sessions you can have a half-hour tutorial session with me completely free. Please do not just turn up expecting to be helped though. There is a system in place, and you need to book a place in advance. The whole session lasts for 2 hours and usually there are only one or two Dorset Digital Champions available, so this means we are limited to helping a maximum of four to six people. This is why you need to book in advance.

Booking a place in Purbeck is fairly straightforward, but you may contact me directly on this site if you need any help or information before booking, but please take note that I can not arrange the booking for you. That will still have to be done by phoning the number I have just given you. I can answer simple questions about how the scheme is run, who is eligible for the free training etc. Due to demand for places the half-hour limit has to be adhered to quite strictly, so you are advised to turn up at least five minutes in advance. You will need to be a Dorset library member to use the library’s computers, but free WiFi is available, and wall sockets to power your own laptop. That’s another good reason for getting there early, because you won’t have to lose time messing around getting logged in to the system – you would be able to start learning straight away. At Branksome Library in Poole, there is no need to book – it is a drop-in session so just turn up and use the service.

If you would like longer lessons, these can be arranged. I also offer private computer lessons in your home, where you can learn at a your own comfortable pace, in familiar surroundings on your own machine. Contact Wessex Digital for more information.
