Lichfield District Council and South Staffordshire College are teaming up to provide courses in office skills to residents in Lichfield District.

Two courses are available, called “Introduction to Office Skills” and “Getting to Grips with your PC” and are said to be ideal for anyone needing an introduction to using computer or who is interested in working in an office as no experience is necessary.

Councillor Helen Fisher, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “We decided to offer these courses as we want to help local people to improve their skills, and to make it easier for them to find a job. We hope lots of people take up the opportunity to learn and enjoy these practical courses.”

The Introduction to Office Skills course lasts for six weeks, commencing on Tuesday 15th June at Hayes Meadow Primary School in Handsacre from 1-3pm. The course costs £10 and will teach a range of office skills including letter layout, computer art, using fax machines, scanning documents and completing job applications.

Getting to Grips with your PC also starts on Tuesday 15th June at Hayes Meadow Primary School but is a five week course running from 7-9pm and costing £5. Skills taught on the course will include word processing, printing and using the internet.

Booking for both courses is available through the South Staffordshire College Enrolment Hotline on 01827 304433.
