A free introduction to the wonders of the web

The Nagle Centre is pleased to partner with the Irish Computer Society (ICS) Foundation to introduce a hands-on and practical IT course, Digital Skills for Citizens. This free five-week course, commencing January 29th is funded by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment.

The course is primarily aimed at those who have not engaged with the digital world and will give students the skills, information and knowledge to take their first online steps.

According to Emma Greene, Nagle Centre IT tutor, this course is ideal for those who have little or no IT experience. “The course is the perfect springboard for anyone who wants to learn basic, yet essential IT skills. In today’s increasingly digital world, it’s becoming more and more necessary to be able to communicate online. From paying bills, to setting up online bank accounts or sending emails for work purposes or just to keep in touch with family and friends, this is the first step to navigating the internet safely and with confidence.”

“Over the five weeks our students will learn about the internet, with emphasis on online safety and security, how to set up emails, search the web and use mobile apps. The course is designed with the absolute beginner in mind, so the step-by-step breakdowns are easy to follow and not daunting in the least.”

“Our partnership with the ICS Foundation, which advocates for and promotes digital inclusion, will encourage more and more people, particularly those with no previous experience to dip their toes into the digital world.”
