SWEATing in Lowedges - a bus for computers.

Wednesday, May 19, 2004

Every Friday the SWEAT bus stops in Lowedges to offer computer training to local women. Meg was invited on board to see the computers and meet some of the learners. They told Meg that having the computers on the doorstep has made a big difference. The women felt more able to get on a bus and ask about training than to walk through the doors of the local college.

 

The bus currently visits 11 venues every week, going there for a year before consideration is given to moving to new areas. The help and support doesn't end with the bus - the project has an outreach worker, Anne Marie House, who helps women to move on to further training or courses such as those offered by local colleges. The individual support they get has given the local women more confidence for the future.

 

The bus provides free, accredited courses in computers including basic word processing, spreadsheets, databases and desktop publishing, family learning, sociology and child psychology. SWEAT by the way stands for Sheffield Women Education and Training.
