Computer Skills Courses

New Cross Gate Trust offers free high quality IT skills training to the local community. Our ‘Digital Life Skills’ programme provides training in Microsoft Excel and Word, in addition to broader support around using a computer, looking for and applying for jobs. Training is delivered both virtually and from 170 Community Project based at 49a Hatfield Close, SE14 5DW.

COVID-19 update. Our face to face sessions have resumed. We are running smaller class sizes to ensure adequate social distancing; all learners must wear masks during sessions unless they are exempt. 

We are registered as an online centre, and through this, can provide access to ‘Learn my Way‘. Learn my way is an online platform which provides help in using the internet, learning how to use key Microsoft packages such as WORD and EXCEL, and even how to access health resources on line or register for universal credit. Please contact amy.glover@nxgtrust.org.uk to register with our centre number.

The ‘Make it Click’ website also has a large list of online teaching resources for different IT skills. Have a look here at some of the webinars you can access.

Our IT teacher, Sezin is running drop in sessions, where you will receive an assessment of your IT needs. Following this you will be able to access more structured lessons covering topics such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, File Management, Safe searching the internet and so on, according to your needs. These courses will be accredited by the Prince’s Trust eDigital Competence Certificate (EDCC).
