IT skills workshop
BlueBay volunteers provide I.T Training
@ a local charity
A team from BlueBay Asset Management volunteered their time to provide informal training on Microsoft Office (2007), which had been recently introduced at the offices of a charity based in Whitechapel.
The BlueBay team met with the charity to understand the level of need. Based on this they worked with the charity to create a structure for the day and designed some worksheets to support the training.
On the day, the team worked on a one-to-one basis with charity staff so as to ensure that each person had training geared towards their needs. The training included office applications such as Word, Outlook & Excel.
Being involved in this project “helped me to build confidence to pass my knowledge onto other individuals, something which I have not done very much of in the past.”
Toolkits prepared by the volunteers have been shared within BlueBay for use by other members of staff
Informed & supported:
"Extremely useful. I felt confident asking questions. Trainers were very patient and excellent in sharing short cuts and useful tips"
Charity staff now able to take advantage of new features in Office 2007, helping them to meet objectives more efficiently
Time & Talents Role:
Leading up to the project Time & Talents helped to match skills, identify community need and made introductions. Following the project, Time and Talents carried out a project evaluation to capture impact of project & integrate learnings
BlueBay volunteers providing IT training to charity staff
One thing that I feel worked particularly well was the one-to-one approach. Charity staff were able to better leverage off my IT skills during our one-to-one session, as they were able to continually ask questions that related to their specific use of the applications"
