We’re the York Learning ICT and E-Learning team, and we’re here to help you improve your IT skills. We can offer you the option to work at your own pace supported by a tutor at pace that suits you. We start off with a personalised skills check to help you find your areas for development and make sure we get you on the right course. We deliver friendly, relaxed, inclusive sessions all across the City of York, and we can offer remote working too – see below. We understand what it’s like to just be starting out with IT, or feel you don’t know enough about it, and know how to help you make progress, to get a professional qualification and to support you get to where you want to be.
We offer the International Computer Driving Licence – (ICDL, formerly ECDL) – the accepted standard for people who want to use Microsoft Office at home or in their workplace. This is FREE at Level 1 and there is a cost at Level 2 and Level 3. We have a wide range of beginners’ courses, including ICT basics, Laptops for Beginners, Understanding Windows 10, and other workshops and courses about digital skills.

We can deliver individual training for staff for ICDL (formerly ECDL) for Level 1, 2 or 3, again FREE at L1. We can offer individual modules so if you just want your team to get better at using Excel, we can help.

You have the option of carrying out distance learning for our ICDL (formerly ECDL) and financial qualifications (reduced cost for this for paid courses) if that suits you better. This would require your computer to have the correct version of Microsoft Office installed (currently Office 2016)
