Take your first steps to using a computer

The Closer to Home: Circular Walks scheme, in collaboration with Adult and Community Learning (ACL), are providing walkers with the opportunity to learn a brand new skill with a FREE computer course for absolute beginners.

After completing a 30 minute walk around Burslem Park, walkers will then be able to head back to the Learning Centre at Port Vale Football Club to spend an hour each week learning how to use a computer. The course has been specifically designed for those who have never used a computer before and has been broken into manageable bite-size chunks.

The Closer to Home: Circular Walks scheme Project Assistant Sarah Tapp said “this is a great opportunity for people in the City to have access to FREE I.T. facilities and support from an experienced course tutor.”

She added “we hope that by combining the computer course with a walk first, it will demonstrate to people that with the right support using a computer can be easy and fun.”

The walk will leave from Burslem Park’s Heritage Room, opposite the bandstand at 9.30am on 11th January 2011 and every Tuesday morning at 9.30am thereafter. The I.T. course will take 12 weeks in total to complete and FREE tea and coffee will be provided for all learners.
