You may like to gain a nationally recognised qualification? If so, then this Entry Level 3 course is for you.

Whether you are looking to develop employment prospects or want to use the internet, access online services, and communicate with others, this course will help you engage in today’s digital world.

This free Learn Devon course will be taught by Brian over 15 sessions on Wednesdays from 9.30am to 12.30pm, starting on March 20 at Crediton Library.
