IT Skills for Adults

Want to update your existing skills or learn something new?

IT skills are essential, and can help at both home and in employment. If you want to learn something new or update your existing IT skills, why not join one of our IT skills development workshops.

Byte size course or new career

As workplaces rely more and more on IT for their day-to-day operation, it’s really important that you continue to develop your skills so that you don’t get left behind.

The workshops are handy for those who need to fit them around work or home lives. You can enrol throughout the year and there are both day and evening session available. Or, you could choose online courses with the same tutor help and support.

You can study areas such as spreadsheets, databases, word processing, presentations, user skills and keyboarding and you will be given an individual learning plan to suit your requirements with tutors on hand to help and guide you through every step.

If you’re looking for a career in computing or IT, a great first step would be to look at our Access to Higher Education (Computing Pathway).
