I.T and learning opportunities

 

 

Our light and comfortable I.T suite is equipped with professional-quality resources, and offers our clients the opportunity, with support if required, to spend some time refreshing their I.T skills, and learning new ones.

 

The room is supplied with desk-based PC's with Microsoft Office, iPads and we have recently introduced 'Alexa' (to great amusement on occasion!), which gives all of our clients equal access to the online world, regardless of manual dexterity or coordination.

 

I.T activities are very much client-driven. Activities may range from planning, creating and ordering lists, charts or diaries, through to printing pictures for collages or scrap books, brushing up on typing skills or software, or embarking on some online research on a subject which sparks interest.

 

Externally-recognised, online courses are also available. One particular client  combined his IT skills alongside his love of cookery, and finished and passed an online food safety course. We are currently looking at expanding this to offer an online course in 'Nutrition'.

 

There is also a colour printer,  large whiteboard, and headphones, if required.
