IT Skills

 Is this you?

  • You use computers and a smart phone
  • When you’re stuck, you look things up on Google
  • You’re willing to help others one evening a month

Come and be one of a team of 3 or 4. You’ll wander round the room and help people when they’re stuck – usually with an “I don’t know … let’s look that up together”.   Call me to have a chat on 07795 257849, email This email address is being protected from spambots.

 Thanks to further funding by Sustainable South Brent we are able to put on more Computer/Phone sessions  ...

Improve your   skills with Computers and Smart Phones: Fortnightly sessions every other Thursday evening between 7pm and 9pm at the Old School Community Centre (to ensure a place, please tell us you are coming). Come to just one session or as many as you need; Don’t miss this opportunity!  Bring your computer/phone - Bring your questions. Explore, play, discover and build your confidence with 3-4 experts/trainers on hand to help you solve your problems and answer your questions. For all levels – beginners to experienced users. Free - donations to charity. Questions or book a place - email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or ring 01364 649290 / 07795 257849. (We are looking for more trainers – you don't have to be a whiz kid! - call Massimo or drop in to a session.) These sessions are a continuation of the SSB Social Media Training Project funded through a successful application to 'Awards for All'.  

 

These are not structured “lessons” and will not be on any particular topic. Our approach will be: try it yourself – ask for help – we give you pointers – we show you how.

There will be a maximum of 16 people, with up to four trainers on hand.

You do not need to own a computer or smart phone. However please read the question below.

You will get more out of the sessions if you are able to put into practise what you have learnt as soon as possible (within the next few days). However, this could be using one of the computers at the Old School Community Centre or a friend's computer.

If you have a laptop, then please do bring it with you.

If you don't, then please let us know by the Monday before the session and we may be able to supply one for the evening.

What else do I need to bring?

Paper and a pen.

Also write down what you want to get out of the session, your questions and things you want to try out before the session.

Who are the trainers/teachers?

Who is coordinating this project

Massimo Giannuzzi - with support from John Gower and Darren Schroeder and Penny Wainwright (SSB Chair and Trustee) and the other trainers.

Are you planning to put more sessions on?

With the January sessions, we have used up the funding we received, so these will be the last.

Why are the sessions free?

Sustainable South Brent is funding this set of sessions. Any donations collected on the night will go towards putting more sessions on.
