How to share your learning

The purpose of these sessions is to keep you up to date with new technologies to support your learners in the future. The sessions are aimed at digital champions or people within the DigiKnow network. Booking is essential as places are limited.

A donation box will be available. The suggested donation is £2 which will be given to the speakers to donate to a charity of their choice. It's not a compulsory payment, simply a way of paying it forward.

What is DigiKnow?

DigiKnow is a network of community groups, organisations and individuals, working to support people in Stockport to gain digital skills and confidence.

Across Stockport, 50,000 adults still lack the basic digital skills they need to participate in today’s world. People who are offline are missing out on all the benefits the internet can provide, from helping them to find work, to saving money and keeping in touch with friends and family.

With the introduction of Universal Credit across Stockport later this year, leaving nobody behind when it comes to digital has never been more important.
