Social Media Workshop

In January learners and the general public were given the chance to attend a free Social Media Workshop held in BFE’s ICT Suite. The event, part of UK Online’s ‘GO ON – Get More Out of Life Online’ campaign, was an opportunity for the local community to find out more about websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube. ICT Tutor David Vasey gave a short presentation on the facts and myths of Facebook, where learners were given a tutorial on the different functions, with an emphasis on how to stay safe and control what information others can see. This was followed by a Q&A session, before learners were able to put their new found knowledge to the test and start socialising online!

The Event was a great success, with learners also finding out how to add photos to their profiles and even posting messages on the UK Online Facebook page to show off their new skills!

As well as the Workshops, we are also running fully accredited City & Guilds IT Courses. Dates are displayed below, for more info or to book onto a course please ring 0191 2632752.
