Live online courses

We make many of our courses available online, usually via Teams. These enable people from all over the world, in different time zones, to take part. They are convenient for many people, as you may be able to fit them around your commitments and responsibilities. Our online courses are taught live by our IT Learning Centre teachers. Many courses include interactive, hands-on activities when your teacher will support you in learning.

The remainder of our programme is provided in person, in parallel with the live online courses. View and book courses that are currently available. If you are unable to attend a course you have booked please cancel your place.
