First Excel training course completed at Vulindlela Centre

Another group of high school students has “graduated” from the computer training provided at the Vulindlela ICT Youth Resource Centre in Hamburg.  This is the first group to have also learnt MS Excel – in the past the training consisted of an Introduction to Computers, MS Word and Internet.  Thanks to the Sustainable Seas Trust providing training and materials to our trainers (Nokuphumla Nameka and Siyanda Paliso) we are now able to offer Excel as well.  This training is provided free to young people in the community as there are no facilities at the local schools.  With a good basic training in IT skills local youth and young adults are now able to access opportunities that were previously unavailable to them – including on-line application to institutions for further learning once they complete their schooling.
