Novosibirsk pensioners will be helped to advance in social networks

The courses will help everyone to master the computer, teach how to “move” in social networks and not be afraid of phishing.

– Involving older people in active work is one of the priority tasks that the regional Ministry of Labor and Social Development is solving together with partners – NGOs, public organizations and commercial structures, – said Vladimir Mashanov, Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Development of the region.

He noted that mastering a computer opens up new opportunities for older people, including additional income: thanks to social networks, you can monetize your hobbies by selling various handmade products through websites. Retired bloggers can conquer the Internet space by increasing the number of subscribers in social networks.

Another popular area is financial literacy. As part of the course, pensioners are taught to plan their income and expenses, use bank cards and not fall for the tricks of scammers.

According to the ministry, older people show great interest in training courses on mastering new professions. Among the popular areas for acquiring and developing digital skills are a software tester, a mobile application designer, and a web programmer.

On October 1, the Decade of the Elderly starts in the region, over 1,700 events for the older generation are planned within its framework.
