SMCS and TAFE Ultimo Digital Literacy Course

Learn Digital Literacy (a community initiative)” is nearing its end and it has proved to be popular among the vulnerable migrants and refugees who are client of Sydney Multicultural Community Services settlement program. This digital literacy course is designed and organised by Rigzin Yuthok, SMCS settlement case worker/youth worker, in partnership with TAFE Ultimo outreach team.
Participants have limited digital literacy skills and English language therefore the course is designed to help them overcome challenges posed by Covid 19 and also enable them to access services and support such as Pandemic Disaster Payment, Vouchers of various kinds from NSW government, trained to use Rapid Antigent test and how to register positive result of RAT test. Even though the participants learned number of new valuable information this course highlight of all was their learning how to perform Rapid Antigen Test at home and how to register positive result on Service NSW website.
The actual idea to facilitate such a course has been there for some time but the decision to go ahead with the course this time was a direct result of the outreach work SMCS conducted in partnership with SCOA late last year during the peak of pandemic.
So far, 4 adults from Bangladeshi background, 2 from Chinese background and 2 Arabic speaking humanitarian entrants have participated in this course.
This coming Friday is going to be the final Friday of the course. Participants are going to learn how to create an account on TAFE NSW website. They will be informed about accessing TAFE NSW website to apply for fee free short courses available for them.
We hope to continue this wonderful course in the future.
