Hi I'm Bill Tasker, I'm in my late 50s and I'm in charge of the Computer Classes at Age UK Knowsley & West Mersey, we teach computer skills to the over-50s.
I'm originally from Newport in Gwent, but have been living on Merseyside since '87 - that makes me a 'Squelch' - a Welsh/scouse hybrid.
I worked in I.T. for 27 years for both the manufacturing and financial industries. I've worked on many different types of applications from number-crunching mainframe systems to both Internet and Intranet applications.
I've been working for Age UK on Merseyside for the last 3 years. I introduce the over-50s to computers and teach them how to become silver surfers. I'm lucky to have a team of 7 dedicated volunteer mentors, so we can run classes Monday to Friday and also visit a couple of other towns to run classes as well as run some home visits where we can teach the housebound on a 1-to-1 basis.
