27th June 2006 2:08pm - Return to press releases

In today's world, computers play a vital role at work and at home. For anyone who may not be used to working with computers there is an urgent need to get to grips with the basics and get on-line.

East Riding College will deliver a short 4 day course in e-Citizenship to provide the qualification that allows computer users with little or no computing experience to get on-line and start interacting across the web safely and efficiently.

The course will run from 9.00am - 4.00pm from Tuesday 11 July - Friday 14 July. It will be offered at both at Gallows Lane, Beverley and St Marys Walk, Bridlington at a reduced fee of £25.

Course Co-ordinator Ann Jones said "The course will emphasise practical skills with a basic introduction to computers and students will also learn to create a simple document, browse the internet and use email".

The e-Citizen qualification does allow progression on to the ECDL which includes additional modules such as wordprocessing spreadsheets and databases.
