Tech at Ascham

Bookings are essential to assist in managing attendance.

Tech at Ascham is a free, weekly digital technology training program which runs for 5-7 weeks, offering personalised learning for people aged 55+ at Ascham School.

The course runs quarterly during each School Term, and we ask participants to commit to all sessions. This allows participants to take full advantage of the program and minimises disruption to students.

Tuition is provided on a one-on-one basis by high school students under teacher supervision. The program offers participants an introduction to computer skills or digital skills development and we recommend you bring your own device (such as laptops, tablets, phones).

Please note you must be a resident of the Woollahra Local Government Area to participate in this program and preference is given to first-time attendees.
