Tech-savvy students at have been involved in running a ‘Tech Coffee Morning’ to help members of the community get the most from their digital devices. As part of the BT Digital Champions initiative, Head of ICT Angus Reith looked to the student population to provide the skills necessary to coach attendees in all things digital; from guiding Margaret through the features on her new Motorola smart phone to helping Roy set up his Facebook account, the Digital Champions provided a patient and friendly service and were all too happy to go through the basics.

Margreet van Waasbergen later praised the event: “I think this initiative is very good and a needed one for everyone who wants to stay independent and remain part of this digitalised society.

I was very impressed by the excellent behaviour of the three ICT wizards: Kailan, Harry and Tom who helped me. They were very patient and were able to pass information in a calm and understandable way.

All in all this was a wonderful opportunity for me to learn how to use my new tablet”

As a reward for taking part in the scheme, the Digital Champions have free tickets to the Rock Assembly at Wembley Arena, hosted by Radio 1’s Nihal and starring Professor Green, George the Poet, Conor Maynard, Ella Eyre, Misha B and many other acts, along with 10,000 other young people from across the country, all thanks to The Transformation Trust – helping schools transform young lives.
