Computing & ICT
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. There are no exams and the sessions can be tailored specifically to you and your needs, ensuring you focus on what you really need to know.
We also run short courses for those who are new to computing, or want to improve their basic skills. During these courses you will learn things like how to create a folder, type a word document, set up and use an email account or browse the internet.
Functional Skills Qualifications
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..
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.
