Emily’s Story

I used to work at the Council. After leaving that job I had an inkling that I’d like to do something in IT, but I don’t have any formal training. I spoke to my Work Coach who told me about Go On Worcestershire Digital Connector Tim Marsh’s work experience scheme.

I jumped at the opportunity! After the interview I was even more enthusiastic. Tim trained me using the Learn My Way website. Since I started I’ve found the job satisfaction is massive. It’s helping people and speaking with members of the public I’ve enjoyed most. I’ve helped a man learn Word so he can write his autobiography, an elderly lady organise a life time’s photos, and introduced people to the internet who have never used it before. After being out of work for six months it’s a real boost to your confidence. Being a Digital Champion is more than volunteering, I feel like I’m part of something.
