FREE online IT sessions are being offered to people over the age of 50 who want to gain new computer skills.

The courses will be run at Littleport and Soham libraries and will offer support and guidance to allow people to access a wide range of learning opportunities.

Information and advice sessions will be run; there will be around 30 hours of free tuition on how to use email and the internet; skills checks and free skills for life courses with the chance to gain national certificates.

The EngAGE sessions are funded by UK Online and delivered by a partnership consisting of Cambridgeshire County Council's libraries and adult services, Age Concern and Cambridge Housing Society.

EngAGE project co-ordinator, Maggie Brown, said: "These courses are ideal for people who are perhaps thinking of doing their Christmas shopping online for the first time, who simply want to brush up on their IT knowledge, or perhaps would like to improve their skills and qualifications."

Sessions will take place on Thursdays between 10am and 1pm in Soham and from 2.30pm to 5.30pm at Littleport.

They should be booked in advance by contacting Maggie Brown on 01223 717064 or 07824 406 103.
