Tablet Taster training
Digital tablet courses
We provide Tablet Taster courses for learners of all abilities.
There are three different courses in total. Stage 1, stage 2 and stage 3.
What we require from you
Once you have decided what stage is right for you all we ask is that you come to all 4 sessions and that you become a member of the Tower Hamlets OPRG – that’s it!
Once you are enrolled on a course you will be able to borrow a Tablet to practice at home if you wish.
Will I need the Internet at home if I borrow a Tablet?
No. All our Tablets have their own sim cards inside, just like a mobile phone so you will be able to be on the Internet and practice no matter where you are!
