I created oUseIT computer training five years ago providing private tuition and classes to the local community.
These ad hoc training sessions grew and now covered an area from East to West Sussex.
Since then I have partnered with local councils, housing associations, Job Centres and UK Online (Government directive) providing classes and workshops all with the aim of helping people become more comfortable with computers, software and the Internet.
I feel that technology and digital skills can be a great help in peoples lives and enables endless possibilities ranging from communicating with your family to setting up a business BUT I also recognise we can all experience technology overload and frustrations with computers and software. Learning to do what you want to do (create a beautiful digital photo album? Manage your accounts with Excel?) is all about keeping it simple and doing it in small steps ….. and keeping it fun.
