THE world of information technology is now only a click away for people who find it difficult to access a computer - thanks to a course at North Devon College.
Staff, customer forum members and customers at North Devon Homes have completed a Computer Literacy and Information Technology (CLAIT) course to help develop their basic computer skills.
Des Kendryna, a North Devon College tutor at Pilton Adult Learning, worked with NDH customer involvement manager, Elaine Yorke, to set up the course which was delivered in weekly two-and-a-half hour sessions over 22 weeks.
The aim of the CLAIT course is to provide basic computer skills which will enable learners to progress at their own pace to a level they feel comfortable with.
