A computer course for people who have their own laptops with the latest Windows 10 operating system installed and who are ready to progress beyond the basic beginners’ level.

Members use their own laptops which they bring to the class each week, allowing them to learn using their own portable equipment as if they were at home. The venue has a good Wi-Fi system allowing full internet access.

This group is limited to 10 members and to keep the group fee at just £1 per member per session we have introduced a pre-pay system where members pay in advance for blocks of 10 weeks with no subsequent refunds, unless of course a whole class is cancelled in time to cancel the room booking.

A wide range of subjects are covered, such as using the various features Windows 10, the Internet and emailing etc.

The group uses Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher so group members need to have Microsoft Office (2007 or later) installed, or be prepared to install it on their laptops. The latest version, known as “Office 365”, can be obtained for £5.99 per month (less if you pay annually). Please contact the group leader using the above email address for further details.
