Open Learning Centre

The Open Learning Centre offers flexible and affordable computer training that enables clients to progress at their own pace & in their own time. A new client can discuss their goals with a tutor and set up an individual training plan to meet their needs. Training is delivered through the use of easy to follow manuals, which include frequent revision exercises, to reinforce learning and build confidence. Tutors are on hand at all times to answer questions, provide support and offer guidance throughout the training process. Sessions are pay as you go and by appointment only.
