Digital Skills Training in Bexley London & the South East - Supporting Digital Inclusion by providing computer tuition and technical support.
Our aim at Learning Digital is to help residents of the London Borough of Bexley and surrounding area to gain essential digital skills and give them access to the internet and computer equipment.
We are reaching out to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups who might be digitally excluded, socially excluded or financially excluded to try to help them improve their lives and overcome social challenges.
Encouraging older people to use the internet helps combat social isolation and has positive effects on loneliness. People with basic digital skills are more likely to be financially capable and can save hundreds of pounds each year by being online.
We are working to establish links with local organisations to offer training and support to groups of affected people. If you would like to work with us to make a difference to the lives of local people, please get in touch now.
Learning Digital CIC Awarded National Lottery Funding
We are delighted to announce that Learning Digital has recieved £10,000 funding from the Big lottery Fund's Awards For All programme.
We have been supporting local residents to help them improve their computer skills for the past 2 years and thanks to the money raised by National lottery players, we have just purchased some much needed computer equipment. The laptops, smart boards, projectors and camera equipment will allow us to travel around the area, bringing our classes to where they are needed.
Our first project is the Bexley Digital Inclusion Computer Course aimed at beginners. We are running a pilot at Erith Veterans Club, Park crescent, Erith and our first 6 learners have been enjoying getting to grips with our Windows 10 laptops. Using valuable feedback from this class we will refine and repeat the course throughout the year.

In January we decided to go back to basics with some keyboard and mouse exercises. But this week we thought about doing something different and useful. We showed the class how to transfer photographs from a digital camera to a computer. ... [ read more ]
Who would have thought it? - 25 November 2016
Mention spreadsheets to the average person and you will see their eyes glaze over. So imagine trying to get a room full of senior citizens to take an interest in them. A couple of weeks ago we asked a couple of people to bring in their utility bills so that we could compare what they pay now with what they could be paying if they switched to a cheaper deal. ...
