Aberdeen Foyer’s Fraserburgh Learning House will be holding an Open Day on Thursday, May 31, from 9.30am to 2pm, at their base in the Stevenson Centre, Victoria Street.
The Learning House aims to provide a warm and welcoming learning environment for individuals who have little or no experience of using a computer or who would like to gain industry standard qualifications.
It is open to all sections of the community, both young and old, who want to be a part of the digital world we live in. Many of the learners who use the facilities have missed out on the information technology revolution for one reason or another and value the relaxed style of learning.
The base is fully equipped with eight desktop computers in addition to a number of laptops all housed in a spacious and comfortable learning area where individuals can develop their skills at their own pace and in their own time.
Friendly help and support is always on hand when needed. Why might you want to learn to use computers? Could be you’re struggling to keep up with the kids or you may want to be able to shop online.
You might have relatives abroad and want to keep in touch through e-mail or send copies of your photographs to friends. Knowledge of computers can be a great asset if you are looking for work or you may simply want to open up a whole new world of information and learning in your retirement. Whatever your motivation, you can be sure that the Learning House is a great place to start!
A whole range of learning programmes is available, from complete beginner courses up to industry standard qualifications, so why not come along and see what the Learning House can do for you. You can be sure of a warm welcome and a cup of coffee into the bargain.
Community Councillor Johnny Lovegrove said: “I encourage people to go along to the open day. The staff to a great job and the centre is a great place for help for those who need it.”
