Be Online

GMB Reachout are again taking part in this year's Be Online campaign. 

Do you or someone you know want to learn more about using the internet?

Do you need an email address to help you apply for jobs online?

Are you unsure about where to start and what 'being online' actually means?

As part of this year's 'Be Online' campaign, GMB Reachout are offering an Online Basics workshop on Wednesday 1st March at ACT Accrington. The session will run for 2 hours between 1pm and 3pm.

Whilst the focus is mainly on using the internet for job searching, our friendly staff will be on hand to show you everything you need to know about being online. Whether you need to use the website or download an app onto your tablet, our staff will give you all the help and support you need.

It does not matter if you're a beginner or a regular internet user, there will be interesting modules for you.

Places are limited so booking through Eventbrite is essential.
