Volunteer tutors are crucial to the success of Broadband for Seniors. In a kiosk, the tutor’s role is to provide face-to-face training for senior Australians in computers and the Internet. But you don’t need to be a computer specialist. You just need a good understanding of technology and and time and willingness to help others.
Network of support
BFS volunteer tutors are not alone. They are part of a network of support through the BFS community of practice, which includes access to:
- resources via the BFS website including BFS online training
- resources on the BFS wikispace
- professional development via webinar in areas such as adult learning principles, social networking, cyber safety and everything to do with technology
- advice and support via the BFS Google Group.
Please note that you are required to undergo a Police Check to be a volunteer tutor at a Broadband for Seniors Kiosk.
