New computing classes at local learning centres

A new selection of computing classes is being launched this September at the Angus College learning centres in Forfar and Kirriemuir.

A range of six different courses will offer individuals computing tuition in a range of specific areas suited to different levels of experience.

Among the offering is a new Digital Photography course which spans over 18 weeks and will give students a comprehensive knowledge of digital camera settings, transferring and editing images using industry standard software.

If it is editing photos that particularly interests you, there is also an 18 week class focusing on editing using Photoshop elements where students will learn how to enhance and improve images using Photoshop.

If you are not yet confident with computers then Webwise Basix might be the course for you, this course is designed to encourage learners not to fear computers, the internet or email. The course runs for nine weeks and covers everything from how to connect to the internet to using email and online communities.

If there is a particular area you wish to focus on the centre will also be offering three new PC Passport courses covering specific areas: Beginners Internet and Online Communications, Beginners IT Software and Presenting and Beginners IT Systems.

All of these classes are ILA funded so if you earn less than £22,000 you could be eligible to do a class free of charge.

To book your place call Karen Cargill on 01241 432724 or if you are unsure which course is right for you drop in to your local centre to find out more.
