IT suite upgrade ahead of new course

The IT suite at the Resource Centre has benefited from a significant upgrade to further improve the training facilities available to businesses and community groups hiring the venue. 

One ‘super tower’ linked to 14 terminals on each of the desktop PCs has replaced the previous individual towers, and as a result the facility now has improved connectivity and increased speed for users browsing the internet.

Angie Kelly, assistant facilities manager, said: “The IT suite at the Resource Centre is ideal for training sessions that require simultaneous IT access and this recent investment will ensure that clients have the best experience possible.”

The improvements were made ahead of the launch of a new eight-day course called Work IT Out which will run fortnightly from the Resource Centre, as well as from the Newtown Community Resource Centre for Stockton residents.

Work IT Out, developed and delivered by Actes’ fully-qualified tutors, is an accredited City & Guilds Entry Level 3 IT and NOCN Level 1 Employability course. It is designed to help people from Middlesbrough and Stockton aged 19 and over to gain improved IT skills that will help them navigate Universal Credit and will support them to meet the requirements of the Jobcentre in searching for work, including setting up and using a Universal Job Match account.
