Dublin North West Area Partnership provides free Information Technology (IT) training through both its Finglas and Cabra offices under the BenefIT programme.

The full course takes eight hours to complete and is delivered over three sessions. The three sessions are completed within one week as this allows participants the chance to practice their newly acquired skills in a short period of time greatly enhancing learning and retention.

Having completed the training participants are required to complete a simple online feedback form to help in assessing their progress and the effectiveness of the programme. The Department of Communications Marine and Natural Resources, who fund the programme, monitor the receipt of feedback forms to ascertain the amount of training taking place and the level of satisfaction with the programme.

If you would like to book a place on a BenefIT course contact Pauline at 8361666 or by e-mail at Pauline.hazel@dnwap.ie

Background 

The BenefIT Programme is a Government funded initiative which aims to promote digital literacy training in communities. It is delivered across the state by a number of community, voluntary and not-for-profit organisations.

The main objective of the BenefIT  Programme is to get more people online – focusing in particular on harder to reach groups like older people, the unemployed and the disadvantaged. Since being introduced in 2008 the BenefIT Programme(s) have provided training directly to almost 95,000 people all over Ireland – helping people to learn new skills, use the internet and access online resources.
