Free Computer Courses Available In New Year
People looking to improve their computer skills in the New Year are being encouraged to sign up to the latest courses run by Swindon Libraries.
The library service is running free computer courses next month (Jan) for people who would like to learn how to use the internet. Those taking part can either use their own laptop or one of the library computers to learn how to use a search engine, find information on health matters or learn how to pay bills online.
The courses, which are aimed at beginners, will also provide some handy hints on job seeking, how to use social media and email, as well as tips on how to do online shopping.
Sessions run for two and a half hours, one morning a week for six weeks. The courses will be running at Central, North Swindon, West Swindon and Park libraries.
No experience is necessary and people of all ages are welcome to attend. The courses are run in small groups and led by qualified trainers, who will provide plenty of support and encouragement.
People who recently completed the course had this to say about their experiences:
• “My confidence has grown and I enjoyed the course enormously.” • “I knew nothing when I started and now I am trying things on my own. It’s great.” • “I sometimes feel that I haven’t understood it and then it suddenly it all seems to make sense.”
The library service is also running separate courses for anyone wanting to learn how to use their iPad
