    Event description

    Be Connected: Computer Skills

    Technology has become a part of so many people’s lives, but not everyone has the skills or confidence to keep up with the constant changes.

    Be Connected is an introduction to core computer skills to help those who wish to start from the beginning, with four subjects over four weeks. This course will start with the essential skills such as typing, using the keyboard, searching the internet, sending an email, and basic features of your smartphone, and go on to build on these abilities to help you gain confidence using technology.

    Bookings are essential as classes are small.

    We recommend newcomers attend the first session in each term, with the second session open to both newcomers and returning students.

    Wednesdays 1pm - 2pm
