“Crossing the digital divide”: helping mature workers get online
Posted on April 3rd, 2013 to Vermont Associates
We are more dedicated than ever to helping our mature workers “cross the digital divide,” to get and stay online. 100% of our SCSEP participants are exposed to online learning and job search activities at some point during their stay. We are excited to partner with Knowledgewave to offer online software learning options to participants who need it. This training is self-paced, and participants can choose the style of learning that works best for them. These are the kinds of training options that many mature workers need to strengthen their computer skills to allow them to apply for jobs electronically.
Here’s a blog post from the Benton Foundation with their take on the need for more technology training options for seniors.
Do you know a mature worker who might benefit from occupational skills training, or technology training? Contact us! If you’re ineligible for the SCSEP, we’ll be happy to direct you to someone who can help.
