The Be Connected Network, our Australian equivalent the Online Centres Network has over 3,000 community centres who support individuals with little or no digital skills to thrive in a digital world. We’re interested in helping to set-up collaborative partnerships between our Online Centres in the UK and our Be Connected Network Partners in Australia, to learn from each other, and find out about each other’s centres and the types of work they do.
We’re asking for 5 Online Centres from our network to come forward if they wish to be ‘buddied’ with a member of the Be Connected Network in Australia. We’re asking you to share your expertise and best practise with an Australian centre and you’ll also have the opportunity to learn from them!
The opportunity will provide you with the chance to:
- Hear about the work the centre does
- Arrange hangout/video calls to exchange information
- Share insights on how you support learners
- Hear about how the centre takes part in events and campaigns like Get Online Week
- Gain an international perspective on digital and social inclusion
If you wish to be buddied with a centre that’s part of the Be Connected Network, please complete this form to express your interest. Please note, if you are selected, you will be part of a pilot that, if successful, will be rolled out to the wider network in the near future. If you have any questions, please email Jonathan Bradwell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
