Success Stories
 
05.07.2011 Arkhangelsk
The Archangelsk Regional Association of NGOs for People with Disabilities
Tvoy Kurs + Personal Initiation = a Great Success Story!

Even with his university degree Aleksandr Bogomolov from Koryazhma had a hard time finding employment because of his hearing impairment and lack of computer skills.

Few unemployed people can afford a paid computer course, so when Aleksandr heard about free digital literacy training available for people with disabilities in Archangelsk, he immediately wrote to the Archangelsk Tvoy Kurs Center suggesting they hold a similar training course in Koryazhma. Trying to decide how to provide the training for someone hundreds miles away, the Tvoy Kurs Center team finally recommended that Aleksandr take the full Digital Literacy Curriculum online, without leaving town, using the materials developed by Microsoft. They also encouraged him to register with the local Employment Center and sign up for a computer course there.

Literally within a few days Aleksandr wrote back saying that he had completed the Digital Literacy Curriculum and signed up for the course in digital literacy for job seekers in the Koryazhma Employment Center. During the training he recruited seven more job seekers to take the Digital Literacy Curriculum and helped them to install the program on their PCs and go through the study materials. When all the seven trainees successfully passed the final test, he awarded them the Digital Literacy Certificates he had received for them from Archangelsk.

Soon after completing the training, Aleksandr landed a job in the computer science laboratory of a local high school. At the interview he presented both certificates, his Tvoy Kurs Certificate attracting special attention and interest of the employer.

The Tvoy Kurs Center team is very proud of their unusually productive alumnus and hopes that this success is the first of his many future achievements.
