Our one day course will give you the foundations you need to support beginners to learn basic digital skills.

The next course is 9.30am -4pm on Monday 22nd June at Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham. You can book a place by clicking here and using the password ‘FrodshamDLC’. There are 10 places available so we recommend booking early. All DLCs need to complete a DLC application form (see attached) and give the names of two referees before attending the training day.  

 

After the course we will help link you up with a voluntary or community group looking to recruit IT volunteers to help support their digital outreach work such as  a local library, Age UK Cheshire, Peaks & Plains Housing Trust or Cheshire Community Action. You will also get the opportunity to attend additional courses to develop your own knowledge and skills.
