IT

IT Suite

We have a dedicated self-contained IT facility that allows visitors of all ages and skill levels to realise their IT needs. Whether you just want to browse the internet and check your emails or create a document, you will always be welcome at the Bridgend Centre. We will even make you a cup of tea to help you feel at home. In order to cover the cost of providing this service there is a small charge.

IT Tutoring

We have a number of skilled and knowledgeable IT tutors based at Bridgend who can help you develop your computer skills on a one-to-one basis, whether you are a beginner or wish to extend your skills. A friendly chat will establish what you wish to learn and your level of expertise and lessons will then be tailored to your individual needs.

Probably the best part of choosing to learn with the Bridgend Centre is that we work hard to provide a relaxed welcoming atmosphere in our Computer Suite and indeed across the whole Centre. We know that if you feel at home with our Centre then you’ll feel at home with your learning.

There are limited spaces available for one to one teaching, so please contact us in advance to arrange.

Our one to one teaching is heavily reliant on our volunteer network and so if you are proficient on any aspect of computing and would enjoy the challenge of helping others to gain your abilities then we would love to hear from you. Any time you could spare, however small, would go a long way to help the Bridgend Centre to fulfil its vision of community spirit, where we all band together to help each other meet our common goals.

Itea and Chat

On a Friday afternoon, every fortnight, our partners Lifelinks run an ‘Itea and Chat’ session in the Bridgend library. Skilled volunteers will show you how your ipad, tablet or smart phone works and the things that can be done on it.
