Digital Skills for Life Course

A half-day course to provide you with the basic skills to use online technology.


  • What the course covers
  • How to book a place
  • Where the course is held

We want to ensure that everyone in the community has the skills they need to get online. The majority of shopping deals, banking, job and benefit applications are online, and we want to avoid people being digitally excluded and disadvantaged because they aren't able to access the internet.

In partnership with Signpost, we have created a simple step-by-step course called "Digital Skills for Life" - our free half day training course covers how to:

  • Set up an email account
  • Open, type, save and retrieve a word document
  • Browse the internet
  • Look at local services
  • Register for online learning
  • Keep safe online

Book your place by calling Signpost on 01206 861800.

The course takes place at Signpost's Offices above Greenstead Library twice a month.
