ICE (IT Classes for Elders)

Students at Northumbria Students' Union have given up their valuable time to help older people gain IT skills - and as a result over 400 older people in Newcastle are much more confident in using computers. So if you have never used a computer, or simply want to use one a bit more with friendly help - the students are there to be that help.

The sessions are fortnightly and run on a Wednesday from 30 January 2019 until 27 March 2019 and they are free of charge. The venue is Northumbria University.  You can even bring your own equipment (e.g., your iPad) to the session if you’d find that easier.

Please note:  places must be booked for sessions in order to ensure there are sufficent students available to help.

If you would like to book a place, or would like further information, please either email Pauline Rutherford on [email protected] or telephone 0191 208 2701.
