Success! Seven students complete 'computer for beginners' course

Ross Crawford 14th Dec, 2018

SEVEN students have success at their fingertips after completing a computer for beginners course hosted by Redditch Borough Council.

Excel, Word and Publisher were just some of the programmes which the learners picked up top tips on.

The course was put on as part of the council’s commitment to providing access to computers and encouraging residents to access services online.

After completing the 12-week course, the students were presented with their certificates by Redditch Mayor Councillor Juliet Brunner.

She said: “We do live in a digital world and it’s great that you have taken the time to develop your skills. A whole world of opportunity is now at your fingertips!”

The eldest student to complete the course, 78-year-old Eva Bailey, said: “It has given me lots of confidence and I look forward to using the computer more.”
