workshops tailored just for you

Our workshops provide a carefully tailored package in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, to help maximise your learning potential. Are you seeking a little understanding! Maybe you need help getting to grips with your first ever computer.

Are you completely new to all of this? Would you like to better understand how your technology works - what are the differences between the most popular software and systems? Why would you choose to own and use one type of device over another? How can you better use email and work with attachments? Can you surf the internet safely? How do you manage your photo library quickly and efficiently, what are the best ways to keep these precious memories safely backed up? How can you use online banking safely?  

Perhaps you have the basics down, but you are looking to improve your productivity with a particular device or piece of software. Would you like a better understanding of how to make all your devices work together? Need to brush up your skills, gain a better understanding of system security and configuration, improve your file management techniques, or even enter into the world of advanced image editing?  

Code and chips workshops can be tailored for the individual or for small groups, ideal if you want in home private sessions or a planned course for your staff members. Our sessions are always carefully planned to ensure you get the best from them. We consult thoroughly with you, and conduct initial interviews in order to deliver real improvements for you or your team.
