“At last, the computer age has reached Driffield” claims Shirley Harrison, one of the adult learners now taking advantage of the new IT courses which the Adult Education Service is running at the ACE Centre, Driffield School.
“I’ve been waiting for a long time to be able to get on a computer course in Driffield which actually meets my needs. It’s so nice to be able to pop along to the ACE Centre every week and improve my IT skills”.
Fellow learner Dorothy Found added “The Ace Centre is a wonderful facility, how lucky we are to have it in Driffield. These adult classes provide the perfect opportunity to find out more about computers, whatever your age”.
Course tutor, Dawn Larkin, is delighted that the IT courses are now taking off with more adult learners turning up each week. “It’s often difficult to get new courses up and running, but, with the help of the ACE Centre manager, we’ve been able to promote our courses to parents of children at the school through the newsletters and also to the wider community via the Driffield Times & Post”.
“Our free IT Drop-in session on a Tuesday morning from 9.30am to 11.30am is a great place to start if you’re not sure what level you’re at or you want some advice about which course will suit you best.
“Learners can pop in for up to four weeks free of charge and then move on to our Thursday afternoon (2pm to 4pm) Beginners IT Course or our Thursday morning (10am to 1pm) Accredited IT Course”.
For adult learners who would like to find out about the wide range of courses available through the Adult Education Service in the Driffield area there is a free half term event in the ACE Centre. Come along to Start Something New on Tuesday 18 February from 2.30pm to 5pm.
