Computer Suite

The Centre has a state of the art computer suite, equiped with 15 internet linked pc's. This was made possible by funding from the EU Programme for Peace and Reconcilliation (IFB Northe Down Strategic Partnership). Whether you are terrified of the computer, or a regular "net surfer", Kilcooley Women'sCentre has a course to offer you. Classes are offered for the beginner - "Introduction to IT" to those for the more experienced user such as "ECDL" an Internationally recognised qualification. Word Processing stages 1, 2 and 3 are a popular choice together with Audio Transcription at Intermediate and Advanced levels

Also on offer is digital photography and introduction to the Internet. Class numbers are kept small, in order that the student receives the maximum assistance from the tutor. All classes are relaxed and informal, attracting a diversity of student - from the young school leaver to the pensioner.

The group has successfully run GCSE Maths, English, Biology, Sociology and History. With the introduction of GCSE classes, existing students can carry their studies to a higher level. Click on the timetable tab to check the courses on offer for the academic year September 2008 - June 2009. If you need advice on any courses, please get in touch.

Impove your Maths/English has been running successfully in our Group since 1995. These courses are particuarly useful to those who need to brush up on maths and English and for parents who want to be able to help their children with their homework. Each student has their learning programme allocated according to their needs and caters from beginner upwards. This is the ideal opportunity to obtain the building blocks before moving on to GCSE level.

Meeting on a monthly basis, the reading group is supplied with a 'BOOK OF THE MONTH' of their choice to take away and read. The monthly session allows the members to discuss the book and what they felt they gained from it, over a cup of coffee. We hope this will reintroduce our members to reading - many of whom haven't read a novel in years! We are grateful to Bangor Library for facilitating this project. We welcome new members at any stage, you do not have to be enrolled in an educational course to attend. Give us a ring for the next meeting date.

Smoking cessation advice is available on request. We have personnel trained by Ulster Cancer Foundation who can advise and support you whilst you try to quit. In addition, we can monitor your carbon monoxide levels, which you will see dropping dramatically as you kick the habit. © December 20, 2008
