New Computer Courses in Burton Bradstock
Following the Open Evening in May, local education and training providers have been contacted to see which courses they can run locally. Thank you to everyone who completed a questionnaire to enable us to reach this stage. Most of the courses will be held during the daytime together with a couple of the more specialised areas in the evening as the availability of trainers is more limited for the evening sessions although this is an issue that the providers are looking into. Some courses receive higher subsidies through government funding and you will see that Burton Bradstock Website Committee has been able to offer these at particularly low prices.
The first courses including Word Processing, Databases and Digital Photography will start during the week commencing 8th September. Introductory courses for complete beginners or those of you that wish to develop more confidence in computing will start the following month, on Tuesday 14th October. All courses will need a minimum number of people in order to run and in the case of the introductory courses the minimum is as high as 10.
We intend to offer courses in response to demand throughout the year with a gap through the summer months and will keep you informed through the Bride Valley News and the Website. For details of the next courses please see the table below. You will see from the number of sessions indicated that the Digital Photography courses are only single sessions whereas the other courses all have multiple sessions, up to a maximum of 6, running for consecutive weeks.
* The introductory course is offered by Weymouth College and is subsidised as a taster course consequently we regret that we cannot take bookings from people who have already attended this particular one.
Bookings can be made by e-mailing Karen Venn on firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 01308 897094 between 5pm and 7pm weekday evenings.
