A BOOKLET has been published about the LymeNet community learning centre for Lyme Regis and the surrounding area.
The People of LymeNet explains how the centre works and features first-hand stories from people who have been helped.
LymeNet provides tuition, advice and internet access for people to improve their skills, employment and life prospects.
It offers access to information, advice and guidance in relation to work and training opportunities and can help people improve their CV, job applications and interview skills. It provides supported internet access and has a Job Centre Plus point where people can perform job searches.
Tuition covers a wide range of IT courses, from complete beginners to more advanced qualifications, as well as literacy and numeracy from the basics up to Level 2, equivalent to GCSE grade A to C.
Work experience opportunities are on offer for those looking to work in an office environment and the centre has a team of volunteers who help support its services.
LymeNet also runs the Lyme Regis branch of the Credit Union and provides office facilities for residents and visitors.
Centre manager Lucy Campbell said that there has been a huge commitment to keep LymeNet open despite the fact that it doesn’t receive any core funding.
She added: “This booklet illustrates the benefits for those who use LymeNet and hopefully helps people understand the work we do.”
