We offer a range of workshops and drop-in sessions designed to enhance your digital skills.  No experience is necessary; simply sign-up, turn up and learn something new.

The vast majority of our training sessions take place in L408 in the All Saints Library; however, Classroom Technology sessions will take place around the campus and the rooms will be clearly signposted.

Can't find what you're looking for? We can design a bespoke training session for you and your team.
