The Office for Seniors is seeking to engage providers to deliver Digital Literacy Training for Seniors for up to three years. This is to ensure seniors have the appropriate skills and knowledge to benefit from the digital world, and to keep up with the change of technology.
Seniors are consistently among the most digitally excluded group and while the use of technology among seniors is growing, this is still falling with age. For seniors to benefit from the digital world, they need more than basic computer skills. They need to know how to use different technologies/devices, connect to the internet in different ways, and carry out online activity and services safely with trust and confidence.
We are seeking Respondents who have the capability, experience and infrastructure to deliver quality digital literacy training for seniors. They can also reach diverse groups of seniors, including Māori, Pacific, and other ethnic groups using a people-centred approach to meet their diverse needs and can start delivering the service from February 2020 for a period of up to three years.
We expect the service to be delivered nationwide. Respondents can provide services either nation-wide or regionally but must be able to demonstrate community connectedness in any area they apply for.
The Government has allocated $600,000.00 to provide Digital Literacy Training for seniors over three years. The total funding available is set at $100,000 for 2019/20, and $250,000 for the next two years.
