Tamworth Community College

It's never too late to brush up on your online skills or learn new ways to stay connected with your loved ones!

Tamworth Community College (TCC) helps local seniors build their skills and confidence to use computers, tablets and smartphones through the FREE Tech Savvy Seniors (TSS) program. The TSS program is delivered in partnership with TCC, the NSW Government and Telstra.

TCC recently delivered tech training to three groups of eager senior students in its first successful TSS delivery. Over nine weeks, 24 students between the ages of 60 - 89 learned how to keep- in touch with family and friends, access government, health and other essential services, and safely search the internet.

TCC Administration & Student Support Officer Katie Hamlin was incredibly impressed with the response from the community for the course after a shout-out from Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson MP. Katie said, "It has been great to chat with everyone each week over morning tea (specifically the scones from Baker's Delight)!"

Student feedback has been positive, with Mavis Brown stating, "This course has opened new doors and given me insight into more things I can do on a computer that I didn't know. It has made me more aware of my security from what I put out there on the internet". Student Wayne Bevan said, "The Tech Savvy Seniors course is a very well laid out course. It is a fun time that goes so fast. I have learnt a lot straight away".
