Hastings District Libraries is partnering with Digital Circus to offer computer classes to local ethnic communities.

This pilot programme will first be offered to a small number of women from our Muslim community initially, and held at the Hastings Library.10 sessions will be held between 9:30am and 11:30am starting from the 21st of January and running until 26th March 2022. We hope to roll classes out to our other communities in the future.

The course would cover:

  • Foundation/Basic skills
  • Skills to carry out online activities and access services
  • Social connection skills
  • Skills to be safe online
  • Motivation in using digital technology

Participants will received handouts to take home with them.

Wraparound services hosted by the library may be available, such as entertainment for children aged between 3-6 years of age who are not in ECE or school care, and transport for those who would otherwise struggle to get to the classes on their own.

Please note: Classes and supplementary offerings may be subject to cancellation due to Covid19 developments and/or mandates.
