Never too old to learn!

By Racheal Goodenough, Adult Community Learning Tutor

I would like to introduce one of my learners who is currently on the iPad for beginner’s course at the Central Library in Swindon.

Kenneth Sherwin is 93 years old this year!  I asked him, what made him come on the course?

Kenneth Replied “My daughter and son-in-law bought me an iPad for my birthday last year and I have not used it, so when I saw your adverts in the library, I decided to sign up.”

Kenneth was the head of the Engineering Department at Swindon College when he retired and had worked for them for over 30 years.  Kenneth started at the college in 1956 as an engineering tutor and was the 27th member of staff.

Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? With patience, praise and encouragement anything is possible!  It just takes a little longer!
