IT Drop-In and Learning Centre

An IT class in progress

Our IT Drop-In and IT Learning Centre at our Shopmobility premises and Macclesfield office  provide friendly and relaxed tutor-led IT courses. These can be group or 1-2-1 sessions depending on individual need. The Disability Information Bureau has helped hundreds of local people develop new skills and gain new independence. We can help you to communicate with friends and family, access local services and find new employment. Our service is available to adults of all ages and abilities; it is not necessary to have disability.

In August 2013 the DIB took the step of becoming a provider of accredited courses through the Open Awards body and in the following academic year claimed over 180 nationally recognised certificates for our learners. We also continue to help many more people through our Community Learning courses.

Courses on offer include, but are not limited to:

  • Computer Fundamentals
  • Microsoft Office applications (Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Desktop Publishing, Presentations)
  • Email and Internet
  • Employment related ICT (creating CVs, covering letters, etc)
  • Advice and training in adaptive technology
