Get Online Week will take place from 15–21 October 2018 with a range of events across Northern Ireland providing free digital training sessions for people.

A session entitled ‘All Things Digital’ will take place in Newry Library on Thursday 18 October from 10am to 4pm.



The event is free, informal and must be booked in advance by phoning Newry Library on 028 30 264 683.

The session will provide one-to-one training with hand out training resources to take home to continue the learning. It will cover topics such as: Email and web, Apps, social media including Facebook, online shopping, online security and online Banking.

Sue Gray, Permanent Secretary at the Department of Finance, recently launched Get Online Week 2018 during a visit to a digital training session at Ballyhackamore Library in Belfast.



During the visit Sue Gray said, “Get Online Week 2018 will provide people with a practical opportunity to get online for the first time or to enhance and improve their existing skills.

“Listening to some of the people at the session they all had different reasons for attending but a common goal, to be more digitally active. We live in a world where so many elements of our daily life require digital skills, and we must ensure no-one feels excluded or left behind.

“I would encourage anyone who thinks they may benefit from the range of courses taking place during Get Online Week to give it a go,” she added.



Michelle Armstrong who participated last year said, “I highly recommend anyone who needs some help to get online to sign up for the digital courses during Get Online Week.

“I did and my IT skills and knowledge of the web have improved plus the courses are informal which makes the learning fun.”
