Action Foundation is looking for Delivery Partners for a new 12-month Digital Inclusion project, that
will see refugees and asylum seekers being given tablet computers and the training needed to access a wealth of empowering digital services.
The project will empower beneficiaries to access employment and education opportunities. The mentoring approach uses digital tools to reinforce habits, skills and knowledge. In this way, we will ensure that learning is participant led and adaptable to any level of competency or aspiration.
The delivery model relies on the strength of existing connections built by organisations with local people.
We’re looking for Delivery Partners with services aimed primarily at refugees or migrants with the right to work based in or supporting people who live in the North of Tyne area.
Action Foundation will provide Delivery Partners with:
- Tablets and Data SIM
- Full training for staff/volunteers (1/2 day commitment)
- Learning materials
- Support throughout the process
- Manageable reporting requirements
- A flexible approach to the way your organisation delivers this support
For all beneficiaries:
- Tablet with Data SIM (6 or 10gb)
- Foundational digital skills
For eligible beneficiaries:
- 1-1 Mentoring
- Personal Learning, Skills & Employment Plan
The project aims to get over 400 people through the programme, with 50 people into employment and 160 people into further learning. The idea is to reach people who are typically excluded from these kinds of opportunities.
