Free classes on computing

The Damacre Centre will be holding free computing classes for the over 55s.

“First Click” is a BBC Learning campaign to encourage those aged 55 and over who currently do not use the internet, to understand and enjoy its benefits.

The beginners’ computer course has been created to take participants through the first and essential steps of using computers.

The course will allow participants to understand computers and how the internet can help them stay in touch with family and friends; explore interests; find out useful information.

The course is being delivered by Angus Gold, which is part of Angus Council’s Community learning and development service within the department of education.

Angus Gold works with the over 50s population across Angus in a variety of ways.

Julie-Anne Kinnear, community learning and development worker said: “We are delighted to become a support partner for BBC First Click in delivering the course and look forward to meeting new learners”.

The first courses will run every Tuesday and Friday from March 1 to March 25 in the Damacre Centre, Brechin with hourly classes at 1.30 pm and 3 pm.
