Information Technology

We teach a range of Information and Communication Skills (ICT) to adults who have literacy difficulties, in small friendly groups. We aim to encourage and support the learner who lacks confidence in this area, helping them to become part of our digital society. Our classes run from absolute beginner (often called Computers for the Terrified!) to QQI Level 3, across the county in a range of settings.
