The government regeneration scheme, 'Communities First in Rural Somerset', which aims to break down barriers to employment and support local businesses, is offering residents from three villages the opportunity to learn how to use a computer or update their existing IT skills.

People living in Woolavington, East Huntspill or Mark within Sedgemoor in Somerset, can attend two hour IT taster sessions. Free transport and child care facilities are available.

The classes have been orginated by the rural task force in order to assess the need within the area. The task force, comprising of

representatives form the three villages, is pleased with the response and the fact that the villages have taken the initiative to attend classes and learn a new skill.

Christine Lavers, district councillor for Woolavington commented 'This is what Communities First in Rural Somerset is all about - providing training for the workforce to ensure they have the skills that employers want'.

If enough need is identified within the communities, computer courses will be held, enabling participants to gain a recognised qualification on completion.
