Computer skills for all

What's on offer?

These days everything seems to be on a website, and if you aren’t sure how to use a computer you can feel left behind.

There are lots of opportunities in Shropshire to have a go at using a computer for the first time. Download the 'Computer Skills for all' leaflet from the related documents section of this page. Everyone's welcome - you can go at your own pace with no pressure and there's lots of support available. Most sessions are free or ask for a small donation. If you've a laptop, bring it along, but there are computers you can use.

Many sessions are run by volunteers, so it's a good idea to check that a session is running before making a special trip. Please call the number provided in the details for each venue.

If you have a friend or relative who would enjoy going online but hasn’t quite got the confidence, you're welcome to bring them along to a session.

Alternatively, you may want to complete some online training yourself using the handy online training tool ‘Learn My Way’.

Special access requirements?

Computers can easily be adapted for users who have particular access needs. Please speak to the venue near you to discuss your requirements, and we'll do our best to help.

Want to help others?

You don’t need to be a computer expert to get involved. If you have some basic IT skills and would be willing to share what you know with others, we'd love to hear from you. It can be a great way to meet new people, develop your skills and help others discover the joys of the world wide web!

Contact the venue near you for more information and to arrange a taster.
