A creative computing course could really click with adults with disabilities in East Cambridgeshire looking to develop basic IT skills.

The new course is being developed Cambridgeshire County Council's Adult Learning & Skills service after learners requested it.

The course promotes independence for Adults with support needs and will include digital photography, using the Internet and using office packages and basic journalism skills. The learners will work on editorial projects individually and as part of a team and produce a newsletter.

The course is part of the Council's Move on Up programme for Adults with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities.

Niki Brown, the Cambridgeshire County Council Tutor who is delivering the course, said: "Learners really enjoyed making their own bookmarks at a recent taster session. Our Creative Computing course aims to help  individuals develop IT skills which will promote independent choices, build confidence and include learners in the digital technology world"

Sessions will start after half term on Monday afternoons making use of the technology in Ely Library's Learning Centre.  Places are fully funded on this and our other Move on Up courses for adults with support needs.  For more information, please contact Astrid on 01223 703530 or [email protected]
