Computing & ICT


For those looking to further their IT skills, we offer a 12-week course from a recognised awarding body – OCR – which will result in a Level 1 or Level 2 Functional Skills qualification. The course includes modules on Computer Basics, Health and Safety, Data Protection, Word Processing, Spreadsheets and Presentations.

If you are an IT novice, you can spend an hour in a one-to-one session with our dedicated tutor, where you can learn about computers, tablets or iPads. You will learn about identifying parts of the computer and be given an introduction to features such as desktop, documents, the internet and email. There are no exams and the one-to-one sessions can be tailored specifically to you, ensuring you focus on what you really need to know.

You may also be able to access services from other providers. Age UK have teamed up with the Masonic Charitable Foundation to offer Digital Champions Sessions in Uppingham and Market Harborough.
