Digital Literacy

Our tutor can help you to learn all those things you have always wanted to know about your computer or other devices

What to expect

Each module takes up to 2 hours to complete, with your tutor there to assist you as needed. In some cases, the tutor will recommend a series of modules, depending on your needs.

Let us know ahead of time what you are interested in learning and we will make sure you have the relevant module and exercises to learn from available for you.

Course details

Courses run in both Hokitika and Greymouth every school term.

Each session starts off with a revision exercise based on what you learned in the last session and a review of what will be covered next.

To register your interest, or to find out about session times, talk to our team based in Hokitika.
