The Pelican Trust Home-based Learning Scheme is funded by Lincolnshire County Council and provides up to 20 training hours in computer skills and use of the Internet for people who are either unable to attend a course outside their home or find it very difficult to do so e.g. those with restricted mobility, the visually impaired, those for whom transport to a learning centre is very difficult and Carers who cannot leave their charges.
The course is free of charge provided that you are resident in Lincolnshire and that you are in genuine need of this training in your own home.
The home-based scheme works in the following way. A Pelican tutor will visit you in your own home at times convenient to you both. During these sessions, they will help you to acquire skills and knowledge which will enable you to understand and make better use of your computer and the Internet.
Before leaving, they will agree a series of computer related exercises with you for you to complete before their next visit. These exercises will revise and extend the topics covered during their visit. We would ask that, to make the most of this training opportunity, you do attempt this work before the tutor’s next visit.
If you like the sound of the above and feel that you have the commitment to pursue the course, please contact:
