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.
IMPROVE YOUR MATHS AND
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 CLASSES
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.
