Improve your digital skills at Warrington & Vale Royal College

Does the thought of ordering something online fill you with fear? Unable to navigate the latest new-fangled phone? Want to keep in touch with friends and family online, but don’t know how to sign up to Facebook? If any of these questions feel like they resonate with you then you are in the right place! Or perhaps someone else comes to mind?

We know that not everyone is tech-savvy and that sometimes a little (or a lot of) tech support would go a long way in a world that seems to be getting more and more technological by the day!

We have put together a selection of short courses to help bridge the gap when it comes to tech know-how and help even those with the most limited of skills gain confidence when getting online.

You can join our programme at any of the 4 steps shown depending on what skills you want to learn.


Step 1 – Digital Basics – One Day Taster Sessions

Our one-day taster sessions last for 3 hours and will equip you with the basic skills needed to feel confident when tackling social media, your new smartphone or tablet or just browsing. Feel free to join us for one or all four of these courses and build your tech confidence.

Everyone will be in the same boat, so no need to worry about feeling foolish. Come along meet like-minded people and have some fun!


Step 2 – Introduction to Essential Digital Skills
