Develop your computing skills from home by doing one or all of our computer training schemes – they are free and flexible, you won’t regret it.

If you have little knowledge, skills or experience in computing then these short courses are a great place to start. The courses use the Microsoft Office suite of software to provide you with foundation computing skills essential for employment and future study.


Flexible start dates between January and November.
