Computer Learning Courses

Computer courses for older people. Age UK Bristol

What does it do?

Our aim is to pass on enough knowledge to enable our students to:
- Feel confident and safe online
- Use online services (council services, paying bills, online banking etc)
- Navigate around their computer and tackle any technical problems
- Communicate with friends and family online

We currently run two Basic Computer Learning Courses as well as iPad Courses and more casual 'Tea & Tech' sessions. You will need your own iPad to take part in iPad Appreciation, but for our Basic Computer Learning Courses we have our own laptop computers that you may use. Click the relevant course below to read more about them. 

Where are they run?
We run our Basic Computer Courses in Central Bristol on Victoria Street and in South Bristol at the Withywood Centre on Queen's Road. However our iPad courses as well as the 'Tea & Tech' sessions are only available at our central office.
