Computer Classes Coming Soon!

We are currently working on setting up a computer suite at Braintree Community Centre and will be offering classes in a variety of computer skills, for absolute beginners and those looking to improve their skills.

Some of the subjects we would like to be able to offer include:

  • Beginners’ courses on email, socail media, using Microsoft Word and more
  • Setting up a new iPad, tablet or smartphone
  • Advanced courses – using Photoshop, Illustrator etc.
  • Drop-in sessions


This is where we need your help! If you would be interested in learning any kind of computer skills please use our online form to register your interest and let us know exactly what would be useful for you – it might be one of the topics above, or something else entirely. This will help us to design a programme of classes that meet the needs of the community and make sure you get what you want!

Website Redesign

As you may have noticed we’ve recently redesigned the website with a new look and some more functionality.

We’ve now made it easier for you to book a place on any of our events, classes and workshops. You can now securely book online to reserve your ticket. Currently, payment has to be made by phone once the booking has been placed, but we hope to be able to offer online payments in the future. We are also working on making it possible to enrol on our weekly classes directly from the website.

Do bear in mind that some parts are still under construction, but we would welcome any feedback you may have – please use our contact form.
