programme for seniors
Seniors will have the chance to become more technologically confident via a digital skills training programme the Government is rolling out for up to 5000 people across the country today.
The 2022 Budget has allocated $1.341 million over three years for the Office for Seniors to expand its digital literacy training programme.
In announcing the programme, Minister for Seniors Ginny Anderson said barriers to digital inclusion can include a lack of access to devices or connections, the skills needed to use them or mistrust of the online environment.
“Being online is increasingly important for participation in modern life,” Anderson said
