Searching for the stars of Get Online Week 2019
As many of you will know, Get Online Week is coming back! Taking place 14-20 of October, the 2019 campaign will encourage people to get more out of life online!
Whether they're brand new to the internet or ready to improve their skills to take a further step online, we want them to discover just how much of a difference digital skills can make.
And as in previous years, we're looking for learners from inside the Online Centres Network to be the stars of our campaign, featuring in posters and on the website. We want to highlight the changes to people's lives getting online can bring - encouraging others to give it a go - by telling the stories (and taking the photos) of a handful of your learners.
We're looking for stories of anyone who has seen getting online or improving their skills make a big change to their life. That could mean:
- Finding their perfect job
- Discovering exciting new hobbies or interests
- Reconnecting with family or friends
- Overcoming their fear of internet safety to start shopping or banking online
If you have a learner who you think fits the bill, please email email@example.com with the full name, age and why you think they should feature in this year's Get Online Week – and if possible, a smartphone picture of your nominee.
