As we near the end of 2017, we would like to let you all know what has been happening over the past couple of months at Mohill Enterprise Centre and what’s ahead for 2018.
Full Time Course – Level 5
Our full time learners are currently completing their second module, Image Processing, on the Computer Applications for the Workplace course. They have already completed their Word Processing module successfully. The learners are learning new skills everyday and some are already thinking about what they would like to do once the course is over. A number are considering third level courses and that application process will begin after Christmas. Also, on their return after the Christmas break, the learners will start a Personal Effectiveness module which will help learners improve their job seeking and interview skills and build confidence in their ability to deliver presentations and speak publicly.
There is still time to join this course in January and receive a full Level 5 Major Award in Information Processing so call us on 071 9632024 for more information.
Introduction to Computers
Have you little or no experience with computers? Would you like to learn the basics? Then this is the course for you. A two week Introduction to Computers course will be starting in January 2018.

Our Level 4 computer course learners are also finishing their second module, Desktop Publishing, having already completed a Web Design Module.
