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 from 170 Community Project based at 49a Hatfield Close, SE14 5DW.

COVID-19 update. Unfortunately, we are unable to make use of our IT suite at the current time, as the building is not currently ‘COVID-19 Secure’. There are however, some very useful online resources to help you develop your IT skills in the meantime. We are now registered as an online centre, and can provide access to ‘Learn my Way’, which provides help in using the internet, learning how to use key Microsoft packages such as WORD and EXCEL. Please contact Jenny.couper@nxgtrust.org.uk to register.

When normal services resume (most likely in September 2020), we will be delivering weekly drop in IT support sessions, which will take place on between 2.30 and 5.00pm on a Wednesday.  Just come along to 49a Hatfield Close and ask for Sezin.

Once you have had an assessment of your IT needs, Sezin will be able to book you in to more structured and accredited lessons, in addition to the weekly informal drop-ins. These will cover 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).

Contact Jenny.couper@nxgtrust.org.uk for further information about the IT training available at this time.
