The project in North Lincolnshire is funded by Nominet Trust and Study Parks.
Study Parks represents two unique study support centres hosted at sports clubs, one based at Glanford Park, the home of Scunthorpe United Football Club and the other is at Heslam Park, home to the rugby union and league teams and Scunthorpe Town Cricket Club.
The centres specialise in educating children, young people and adults with innovative and creative learning programmes and training courses and form part of North Lincolnshire Council’s school improvement offer within Children’s and Young People Services.
A key partner – North Lincolnshire Homes – have also identified the need to address digital exclusion from beyond an access to broadband perspective and understand the need to engage with their residents to inspire and motivate people in using technology for community and individual benefits. Michael will review and audit relevant training providers, schools, community organisations and NLH-led resident’s groups and will oversee engagement and training focused on 2000 residents, school pupils and community groups members, alongside the development of proposals for expanding delivery by securing funding for community led Get IT Together projects.
