Digital Technology and Skills Workshops

Learning Plus digital technology and skills workshops offer the opportunity to gain confidence in using computers or devices for work, fun or social media

The workshops have a £3 service charge or £30 a term and provide small group and individual support in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. You can come for as long as you like. It could be for a few weeks or it might be for a year or more.  

Tuesdays Drop-In Digital Technology Workshop

Tuesdays workshops are at Ambleside Parish Centre. They are from 1-3pm and do not require booking into. The drop-in workshops could help with …

  • Doing more with your computer, tablet, or mobile phone
  • Using free on-line learning for work or for fun
  • Using social media and messaging apps

Just pop-in and ask your question or find out something new with Emma’s topic of the week.

During this term we will look at filing and using photos.

Wednesdays Computer/Skills Support Appointments

On Wednesday evenings we have 15-30 minute 1:1 appointments available from 5.30-7.30pm where we focus on learning and developing skills to improve everyday life and work.

We can help you find online learning and support you through it, we can do an assessment of your goals and help you on the path to achieving them whether that be running your household better, applying for a new job, improving reading/writing/number abilities. Maybe you just need to know how to do one thing to save you some time – we can show you how!

Appointments are 15-30 minutes to get help with your specific need. We can plan the best route to assist you further after having a chat.

After taking early retirement following a major illness, I had to rebuild my life. With the help of Learning Plus I gained the confidence to move onto courses at Ambleside Library Community Development Centre and I am now computer literate.
