The CALL/ICT project is Ashton’s Essential Skills programme, part of the Training and Employment department. We provide accredited courses in English and Maths using computers for residents of the Greater New Lodge area. Classes are small and we also offer one-to-one sessions if required. There is no charge for our courses and we are here to help you gain the Essential Skills for your everyday life and work.

Although online delivery of Essential Skills courses is not yet possible, we are looking into ways of providing online classes should it not be possible to restart in-house classes in the coming months. During May and June, telephone contact and Zoom sessions were used to allow some project participants due to complete Essential Skills courses at the end of June to complete assessment and achieve their qualifications in line with the awarding body’s Covid-19 guidelines.
