Bath College is offering new courses for people who want to develop their computer literacy skills and get up to date with technology.
The courses, run by the Adult Community Learning Team at the Somer Valley Campus in Radstock, are free for people aged nineteen and over.
They are aimed at people who want to improve their chances to find work, support their family or live independently.
The first course, computers for work, is a four-week course covering key computing skills starting on November 2nd.
People can also join workshops in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint on November 3rd, November 10th and November 17th.
You can join as many workshops as you like and learn how to make a document, work with data and presentation techniques.
On November 24, there is a Microsoft Outlook course, followed by a one-off workshop on December 9th teaching you how to stay safe online.
The Adult Community Learning Team are also running computer confidence sessions, for people who are complete beginners, in January.
Alex Ewins, 78, has just finished the ‘Get started with iPads’ course so that he can use an iPad with his grandchildren.
He said: “My grandchildren use the iPad. My six-year-old grandson knows more than I do, so I thought it was time to do something about that.
“I’m just beginning to get the hang of it – at least I know how to turn it on and off! It’s a really wonderful course and a friendly group.
“I would recommend it to anyone, in fact I’m keen to find out about the next course for my wife who missed this one.”
All workshops are held during the day. For more information or to enrol, please e-mail email@example.com or call (01225) 328 822
