Project funding makes learning more accessible .
Working in partnership with Fife Scottish Enterprise, The Fife Employability Network and Hoolet Ltd, Assist-I.T. have pioneered a unique project at the Viewforth Centre (a day centre for people with disabilities) in Kirkcaldy, Fife.
With the help of range of assistive technologies, assessments, training and support, members have achieved nationally recognised qualifications at Access Level 3 and/or Intermediate 1 in Communication and Information Technology.
Ian Fricker, Social Worker, Assistant Manager at the centre commented, ‘since the arrival and installation of the new equipment, in particular the alternative and adaptive keyboards and mice, the members have benefited from being able to get full independent access to new IT skills and as a result have achieved real qualifications.’
‘We are particularly grateful to Assist-I.T. who recommended the equipment and have been very helpful in providing the appropriate training to members of staff'.
Harry Ferrier, a member at the centre who suffers from mild cerebral palsy and has a vision impairment has greatly benefited from the project.
‘Despite being in my mid 50’s I have never gained a recognised qualification because of my disability. But now with the software and the various computer adaptations that have been made for me, I can access a computer independently for the first time in my life. Of course, the added bonus is that I gained a qualification in computing which I hope will increase my job prospects’.
