Face to Face Learning is provided by the Adult Learning Team. For these courses, please click on the links above. Some of them are taster sessions, some of them are free. Have a look through what is available in Bridlington and surrounds.

 The ERYC Library Service provides training and courses online. The platform they use is Learn My Way which you access from home on your own device, and you go at your own speed. https://www.learnmyway.com/

There is a specific course for touchscreen devices https://www.learnmyway.com/courses/using-a-touchscreen/ You do not have to register to attend this course but you may need to register for other courses. This is a very quick process, you will need a Centre Code, so please use: East Riding Libraries and Customer Services (Centre Code 8000274).

Both Bridlington Central and Bridlington North libraries have a ‘Tech Time’ group. These are peer led groups with a member of staff or a volunteer in support. They are not courses or training, and because they don’t have a rigid structure, they tend to cover a wider variety of topics that you may not encounter on a formal course.

You Can Save A Life Too

Here at Travelodge, we’re all about helping you discover more of the UK – doing the things you love with the people you love; living life to the full.

That’s why, since 2017, our colleagues have been raising money for the British Heart Foundation to help fund lifesaving research.

Did you know?

Most of us will witness cardiac arrest in our lifetime.

More people would survive a cardiac arrest if we all knew lifesaving CPR.

Which is why we’re really proud to be supporting the British Heart Foundation’s launch of RevivR, an online app, where you can now learn lifesaving CPR for FREE, in just 15 minutes, using nothing more than your smartphone and a pillow or cushion.

So why wait? Spare 15 minutes today to learn lifesaving CPR training with RevivR and be ready for that day.
