Computing, Bookkeeping and Business Courses at York Learning
As the world becomes more and more digital, our courses are here to help you keep up – whether you’re taking your first steps on a computer or need to build your knowledge of advanced office skills.
Many of these courses are free if you earn less than £20,319 a year or receive a means tested benefit such as Universal Credit.
York Learning’s digital skills courses offer you an accessible and flexible way to improve your skills, whether you’re just getting started or exploring advanced skills.
If you’re interested in Essential Digital Skills or ICDL courses, you’ll start by meeting a tutor for a personalised skills check to make sure that you’re on the best course for you. You can study in centres across York, or remotely, at a pace to suit you. 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, get a professional qualification and support you get to where you want to be.
