Broadband for Seniors (BFS) is for older Australians who have a thirst for knowledge but are being held back because they don’t know how to use a computer, tablet, smartphone or the Internet.
Broadband for Seniors (BFS) offers a supportive, small-group environment to assist learners to gain the confidence and skills needed to use new technology
The initial program runs for five weeks and acts as an introduction into computer programs for beginners. Participants are encouraged and supported to transition into the Beginner Computer course where they will be supported to further develop basic computer, tablet and general IT skills.
