Courses

We offer a range of courses, the content of which is based on feed-back from students and the other SeniorNet learning centres.  For us to maintain the relevance of our courses we need you to let us know if there are subjects that you would like to undertake but which are not currently offered.  We don’t promise to meet all requests but we probably know who can.  You can see the courses we offer here.

Courses are held at the Johnsonville Community Centre.  All iPad and iPhone courses are held on Tuesday mornings in Room 2, all other courses are held in the Trust Room on either Tuesday afternoons, or Wednesday mornings and afternoons.

Please note that course bookings close three full working days before the course starting date.

 

Course Requirements

You need to be a paid up member of North Wellington SeniorNet to take part in a North Wellington SeniorNet course.

It is important that you contact the tutor for the course you wish to take part in.  This discussion will ensure that a place is available, that you are clear on the content of the course, and that the course is appropriate for you.

You must pay the total cost of the course the day of the first lesson or before the course commences.

For any particular course it may be useful for you to bring your own computer, iPad, tablet or smartphone.  Your tutor will advise you on this.

Open Sessions

An Open Session is held once a month in the Trust Room in the Johnsonville Community Centre on a Tuesday or Wednesday in the morning at 10.00 to 12.00 or the afternoon at 1.00 - 3.00pm.  All current and prospective members are welcome.  These sessions are free and no booking is required. A tutor or guest will give a short presentation on a topical subject.  It is also an  opportunity to use the SeniorNet tablets or computers, or you can bring your own portable devices if you have questions about their use.  You can discuss any brief questions/problems you may have with your technology or device.
