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.

Our full day training courses currently scheduled include:
Microsoft Excel (Beginners) 29 January 2020 – Book now
Microsoft Word (beginners) 12 February 2020 – Book now
Microsoft Excel (intermediate) 26 February 2020 – Book now
Microsoft Powerpoint 11 March 2020 – Book now

There is a small fee of £10 to register for these full day courses.  However this is simply to minimise ‘no shows’, to minimise any waste of charitable resources. If you are currently out of work we can arrange to take this as a refundable deposit.

From January 2020, we will also be running fortnightly drop in IT support sessions. These will take place on: 8 Jan, 22 Jan, 5 Feb, 19 Feb, 4 March, 18 March and 1 April between 2.30 and 5.30pm [further dates will be released in due course].
These are free, more informal sessions where you can go to access our computers and practice your IT skills. We will have an IT trainer on hand to provide any informal support or advice on any computer issues that you need help with.

Contact for further information about the IT training available at this time.
