Our community learning programme is built around two free web-based learning resources that have almost 100 courses and study aids. Community Learning maximises the choice of courses available to you and enables you to access them from any Enfield library or from your home.
Learn My Way also offers free introductory sessions that provide a grounding in how to use a computer, keyboard, mouse and the Internet. Learn My Way is the self-tuition IT programme that we use to help people get started with IT. It has over 25 courses to choose from. By registering with Learn My Way you will be registering with E-Government, so it's important to remember your username and password. You will need these if you need to access other E-Government services such as renewing passports / driving licences online. You can register with Learn My Way from home or at any Enfield library.
Alison is a provider of free online diploma and certificate courses in a range of subjects, including:
- health and safety
- financial and business resources
