Age UK Enfield offer TransIT. This is a scheme whereby sixth-formers (16-18 year olds) at a number of Enfield schools help older people to learn IT skills. The sessions take place in the IT suites within the schools and are on a one-to-one basis during term time. The TransIT service brings older and younger people together through the provision of computer sessions. The service was set up in 2006. Young volunteers (aged 16-18) from local schools help older people access the internet and other computer packages. The service is free of charge and available to older people who feel they do not have the confidence to access group classes. TransIT provides 1:1 tailored computer coaching and runs from several schools in the borough from October to April each year. Through this informal learning environment, we find that both younger and older people benefit and learn from each other.
