Sharon Cope

Sharon Cape was referred by Ebbw Vale JCP to Communities 2.0 ICT training at Ebbw Vale Library for a three week course.

Sharon was keen to take up this opportunity to learn as she realised how important having ICT skills were to everyday life. Although Sharon had no experience of using computers, she persevered and is now able to begin to enjoy the benefits that using technology can bring. Sharon was nominated and won a NIACE Dysgu Cymru – Inspire Learner Award in recognition of her desire and motivation to learn and to help others.

Sharon’s confidence in with computers is growing and she is able to use her newly acquired skills to actively seek employment.
