People in our community who need help navigating the ever-changing digital world can access digital learning at Yarraville Community Centre (YCC). Training programs include small group sessions on topics such as how to manage mobile phones, data and apps, understanding the internet, and how to get the most out of laptops and tablets.
Nathan Hennequin is YCC’s in-house digital mentor and specialist who also supports the trainers at the centre. He says, “Having access to digital learning is often life-changing for my students. Digital learning can help people to maintain relationships by connecting to their community as well as accessing resources.”
YCC delivers free computer courses through State government ACFE funding in the Maribyrnong local government area. They are delivered at different levels from beginners to intermediate and include a class for smart phones, tablets and devices. The classes are suitable for people of all ages and backgrounds including culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) people. These courses are delivered by our team of experienced, professional and friendly teachers. In the short course area, which attracts a small fee, there’s a range of courses including, smartphone and SLR photography, a video marketing content course and a digital learning short course for study and work.
Digital tools and platforms are becoming ever more integral to our personal and working lives. If you are looking to build on your digital skills, please call Yarraville Community Centre for more information on 03 9687 1560 or email at [email protected].
