IT revolution

As part of the on-going development of our education and employment opportunities, we are planning some big changes to the way our IT services operate.We love IT!

Using the Internet is something that many of us take for granted these days. However, a digital divide exists in this country where close to 9 million people have never accessed the Internet! This figure is coming down slowly, yet 4 million of those people are socially and economically excluded as well.

We have therefore set up a new IT programme that combines subject-specific learning slots and open access. This will give our clients the tools to become involved in and take advantage of the digital world that so many of us are familiar with.

With a different class each day of the week, our tutoring caters to a range of needs and abilities, from lessons for complete novices, to advice on using Universal Job match. As well as the training on offer, people will be able to make use of their new skills during the Open Access sessions that will be running on each day of the week.
