IT Skills

2  hour  session  for  2  people

At our IT sessions you choose the skills you want to develop, and the course is entirely tailored to your current skill level. With only one other woman at your session, you’ll get plenty of one-to-one attention.

If you’re worried your skills are too rusty for office work, these sessions are perfect. You’ll soon build your confidence.

Which skills can I develop?

Before your session, our IT coach will speak with you about what you need and what is achievable within a 2-hour session. You can choose to develop your skills in any of the following areas:

  • Excel for spreadsheets working with numbers and data
  • Word for writing letters and documents
  • Office Outlook for office emails and business appointments
  • File management and Powerpoint training is also possible.

Is the course the right level for me?

The sessions are for women who already have basic IT skills, but feel they need to improve to compete in today’s job market.

For example, you may use the internet regularly for email and to surf the web, but are completely new to using Word to write a job application. Or you may already use Word and Excel, but want to learn some of the more advanced features before applying for jobs that demand a higher level of competency.

As long as you can switch on a computer and use a mouse and keyboard, you’ll develop your skills. But the session is not suitable for women who are starting from scratch – sorry!

How much support will I get?

Our expert IT coach has the empathy and experience that comes from years of working with women who’ve had a long break from work. We understand what it’s like to be facing work again and feeling out of touch.

And you’ll get:

  • One computer per person, so there’s no time wasted in sharing
  • Help-notes to guide you through the tasks
  • Follow-up support via email is available for 2 weeks after the session, when you’re practising at home.

“Lovely, amiable coach with a wealth of experience. Never made me feel stupid and was very gentle with her teaching approach!”
