VCAL students from The Centre's Chisholm Street campus are hosting a workshop on social media with the North East Mobility User Group to help boost their confidence and understanding of using social media and connecting online. The North East Mobility User Group is supported by The Centre's Access All Abilities program and in discussions with the group had identified the need to be able to connect to online community resources and improve their online skills.
After the initial planning with VCAL program coordinator, Trish Sait and Access All Abilities coordinator, Kathy Patton, the idea of a workshop was developed and will now be held on Tuesday the 7th October from 11am - 12.20pm, with the VCAL students giving one on one tuition to the Mobility User Group members.
