Spotlight on the Computer Course

This week we will take a look at the computer course in the centre.  With I.T. part of everyday life, this course provides computer training in all commonly used software applications leading to certification in a wide range of QQI modules and ECDL.  Trainees also get the opportunity to engage in digital photography for the purpose of updating and maintaining the centre blog.  The computer group are also actively involved in putting together information stands in the centre and designing posters. 

It is mandatory to complete an IT module in order to achieve a major award in the centre.  While the trainees are in the computer group they also attend other timetabled classes  - Art, Communications, Maths, Literacy, Numeracy, Work Experience, Business English and Personal Effectiveness.  Some of the trainees are also involved in An Gaisce,  the Health Promotion Team and the Girls/Lads Active Programme.
