The three training levels are beginner, intermediate and advanced. Never having used a computer before, Joséphine entered the beginner level. Far from being discouraged by being a complete beginner, she then participated in all 60 hours that made up the program, iterating herself through each of the levels. Thanks to this she learned the basics of computer use, and now will progress to more advanced skills; spreadsheets, for example. This complete pathway is not the only strength of the program. Classes are also an opportunity to meet people and open up to others. The small group of learners is still in touch and Joséphine has gained a very good friend: Brigitte, whose profile we will share soon."
At first I was scared" she tells us, but the two trainers, Jennifer and Fabienne, were able to put her at ease. "We forgot that we were in class, we are more confident, we don't hesitate to ask questions. And sometimes it also happens that we help other people who are in class”. Joséphine even thinks that she will one day be able to become a volunteer for Konexio to give lessons to other people.
Nevertheless, Joséphine tells us that the lessons are not always enough to acquire perfect control, you also have to train. But practicing when you don't have a computer is complicated. Even now, she lacks a personal computer.
Today Joséphine has gained autonomy. “I can send an email, listen to music, do calculations, I learned everything”. She is now planning for the future, as her mastery of the computer opened up a wide choice of professions to her. Beyond the professional aspect, computer skills also enable her to pursue leisure activities and to accomplish administrative tasks alone. As Joséphine sums it up so well: “The computer tool is your whole life”.
