The main activities delivered at outreach venues would be structured vocational courses and employability sessions. We could supply our own digital devices so that there was no extra cost to the centres to buy their own and they did not have to store them at their venue as the devices would be delivered along with the Tutor. Residents could bring along their own devices and learn how to use them correctly. We have a variety of vocational digital courses on offer, which include ICT Awareness, Word Processing for Beginners/Improvers, Internet and Email, Computers and Tablets, Spreadsheets, Digital Job Club, Photo Restoration , Family Tree Online and Digital Heritage.
