Computer training course

Age UK computer training courses explain things clearly in plain English to help you get online. 

Concerned that many of us are missing out, we work with a network of community projects across the country to provide computer training for older people.

These courses offer easy-to-follow training with the aim that as many of us as possible ultimately enjoy the advantages of computers and the internet.

Can't find a course?

If our network isn't currently providing a course in your area, there may be other organisations providing specialised computer courses and taster sessions for older people near you:

  • Call Age UK's freephone number 0800 169 6565 for your nearest Age UK and ask about local training opportunities
  • Visit UK Online's website - they have 6,000 centres around the UK providing access to and advice on computers and the internet
  • Ask at your local library about computer training opportunities
  • Visit our events section to find out about training events we run in September every year
