In our area, there are at least two experts who travel around the area
giving help, installing repairing etc on the spot face to face- there are
many computer literate elderly who benefit enormously from this service
(Windows only)- pay is roughly £30.00 per hour.  These 'experts' come with
no qualifications of any sort.
There is also a local college giving a range of online classes and face to
face classes in the various applications (Windows) to the range of adults
needing it.
Perhaps wherever any Ubuntu team members are based, they could simply stick
up a note in the local post office or equivalent noticeboard, or offer to
run a 'taster afternoon' in the local FE college to introduce people to
Ubuntu. We also have a cafe that does classes of different types in an
upstairs room.
