What Happens After You Apply


Once UCanDoIT receive your form, it normally takes about 2 months to process your application. If it is successful your local tutor (Simon Smith) will visit you to assess firstly that your place is a safe environment to teach in, secondly that you have a computer that is connected to the Internet, and thirdly that you feel comfortable with the tutor. You would also decide at this point what you’d like to cover during the course, although this can be adjusted as the course progresses. This can be from the very basics of using a computer, the Internet and e-mail, to other areas such as Digital Photography, Social Networking, Internet Marketing, using Office applications, Photoshop, Web Design and many other areas. After the initial meeting, given you’re happy to progress, you’ll begin your course a week or so later. You’ll get 11 sessions lasting between 1.5 and 2 hours depending on your needs and 3 to 6 months after you finish you’ll be offered a follow up refresher lesson.

If this sounds of interest to you please apply, but if you’re still not sure please feel free to call the office staff on 020 8673 3300 and remember to let them know the reference code “Simon Smith”

We hope this is of interest to you or someone you know but even if it is not please keep us in mind in case you come across someone who you feel could benefit from it.
