Customer Service and Job Seeking Skils complete. (One participant has started applying for work and volunteers once a week at YCEN)
Class using Wikispace to access class notes and information, and to read the video manual.
Participants computer skills varied. More experienced are working from a CD in class, mid range are using YCENs on line Introduction to Word and beginners are working with Gail. Some participants will look at Tonys Computer Essential notes from home.
One participant has obtained a part time job on Wednesday mornings. She is keen to do our online Introduction to Word class from home, and she will come in other days to work from the CD. Other participants keen to come in for extra sessions and work from CD. Gail will be available to help them if they have any queries.



Reflections
We still have a few weeks to go but the class is going really well. One lady who was a bit reluctant and only wanted to come to the last weeks of computer classes was a good sport and has joined in the whole course. She is thoroughly enjoying it. Some weeks there have been afternoon sessions as well. The class often eats out together and are forming friendships which is another great outcome. A couple are expressing interest in going on to further study. They are looking forward to Adult Leaners Weeks class next week as I'm giving them a good feed!!





Evidence/Data Collection
Timetable? Sample content? Enrolments? E-mails? Publicity brochures? Photos?
It is hoped there will be a link from YCEN wikispace to You Tube with a couple of videos that class has created.
Enrolment forms. YCEN wikispace. Photos. Attendance Sheet. Class notes.
