What do I need to join the course?

A willingness to learn and a positive attitude! You should be comfortable with using a smartphone or tablet but no previous knowledge of using entertainment apps is required. If you would like to learn more about this first, you might like to attend our Getting to Grips with Using Your Smartphone or Tablet course.

What do I need to provide for the first session?

You might find it useful to bring your own smartphone or tablet along to the session so that we can help you with using your very own device. We do have some tablets available in our centre for you to use if you do not have your own. You might also find it helpful to bring a notebook and pen to make some notes to help with your learning.

What could I do next?

You can choose to complete some of our other digital courses to improve your digital skills. As a next step, you could decide to learn more about communicating using your smartphone or getting around using your smartphone in our other smartphone and tablet courses.

Can we help you to learn?

You can find more information on the Financial help and additional support page or you can contact us to talk about this and any other support we can provide.
