SeniorNet – Essential Technology And Computer Skills For Seniors And Older Adults

SeniorNet is a community training network that supports and motivates people to enjoy and use technology in their everyday lives.

We specialise in improving the computer skills for seniors and older adults, so they have somewhere to go to meet other like-minded people who also want to improve or volunteer to assist others in learning about computers and hear about the latest worldwide computer technologies, through the regular speakers that we have come and speak with us.

Join in the fun at SeniorNet and learn how to do everything from simple word-processing to sending emails and searching the internet. You will also learn how to use your mobile phone and many of the other technologies important in your day to day life.  We provide small, friendly, and stress-free computer classes, where you will gain the necessary skills and confidence you need to get the most out of information technology.

During our current national lockdown, many of our Learning Centres have suspended physical classes but may be offering online courses instead. Please visit the website of the Learning Centre near you to find out what is on offer.
