Learning Sessions


We offer learning sessions on a range of topics, the content of which is based on feed-back from members and other SeniorNet learning centres.  For us to maintain the relevance of our learning sessions we need you to let us know if there are topics 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 help.  You can see the topics we offer here.

General information

North Wellington SeniorNet no longer holds a monthly programme of learning sessions.  To better meet the needs of our members, most face-to-face learning sessions are now held 'On Demand'. 

The time, date and venue of the learning session is decided by the member and tutor, although the Johnsonville Community Centre is available for learning sessions. 

The fee for all learning sessions, whether in-person or via Zoom, is $20 per hour.

In order to meet the needs of members who use Android and Apple devices, ZOOM Sessions are held up to twice a month for both Apple and Android users.  These sessions are held on Tuesdays at 10am - 11am.  See our Interest Groups pages for further information.  Members wanting to attend a ZOOM session should contact the tutor prior to the session.  These sessions are free to all members.





On Demand Learning Sesson Requirements and procedure

You need to be a paid up member of North Wellington SeniorNet to take a North Wellington SeniorNet Learning Session.

If you want to have a learning session, contact Judy by phone (04) 477 1822 or email northwellingtonseniornet@gmail.com

 Judy will then arrange contact with the appropriate tutor who will discuss your needs with you so that you are clear on the content of the learning session, and the learning session is appropriate for you.  The tutor will then arrange with you a time, date and venue for your learning session which suits you both.

You must pay the total cost of the learning session at the session.  If the topic requires more than one learning session the full fees must be paid beforehand or on the day of the first learning session.

For any particular learning session 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 Wednesday 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.
