At a time when all generations have lived their lives online more than ever before, older people have had to pick up new ICT skills.  During lockdown, training courses could not run and families could not help due to shielding and social distancing, at a time when they were needed most. 

The ICTSkillls4All has developed online learning materials, enabling older adults to pick up new basic skills.  Through our work on the project, Cybermoor has explored how 5G can deliver temporary internet connections, taught learners how to spot and avoid online fraud and found solidarity with similar groups in Poland, Portugal and Latvia.

This short online event explains more about how the training was delivered, the topics that people found most interesting and the experiences in other parts of Europe.

To register in advance for this webinar:

Daniel Heery and Kevin Wood from Cybermoor will explain the challenges of delivering this project during unprecedented events of the COVID pandemic and look at how lessons learned can be built into future similar projects and we will also be hearing first hand from two of the learners who took part in the recent online training sesions.


This webinar is designed for a range of people, including ICT trainers, older adults, Local Authority officers, 3rd Sector Organisations and any organisations involved in providing services and advice to older adults.
