Computer Course

If you thought chips and bytes were something you got at a café – think again!

This year, we’d like to offer a selection of useful computer courses – but we thought we’d ask you, rather that tell you, what the courses are.

All the courses are open to any age group – it is a myth that only ‘old people’ don’t know how to use computers!

The Centre is equipped with laptops and the internet, or if you have a laptop of your own, you can simply use that – whatever suits you best.

We aim to keep prices around £5 per session, with a course lasting for around 6 sessions.
