Basic ICT Skills Course


Would you be interested in a basic skill in ICT course? We have been contacted by South and City  College to see if any parents would like to enrol on this free course.
Firstly, we would like to see how many parents would be interested before contacting the college. This will be run across the federation.
Once we know how many parents are interested more information will follow.
