Digital skills courses

Confidence with computers, smartphones, tablets and the internet is increasingly important in our lives and work.  

If you want to brush up on your digital skills or know someone who would benefit, there are several local learning options that can help. Training is available across the borough, from structured courses to drop-in sessions and online learning. Most of the training is free or available at a low cost. Find out what’s on offer below.

An alternative to attending one of these centres is to learn online. You can find out more information on our online support page.
