The FreeTech Project are proud to announce our first of several online courses – following on from our declared plans back in the spring when COVID-19 hit. With in-person workshops postponed indefinitely, we set about plans to deliver our workshops over the internet!

Funding from the Coalfields Regeneration Trust has enabled us to launch the Bentley FreeTech Project, for residents of the Greater Bentley area in Doncaster who are aged 18+. These online workshops will run weekly, Fridays, 9:30am-12:30pm from August 28th onwards.

Research & Development Officer Jane Watkinson said:

“We’re really pleased that we can still deliver our workshops and connect people from a distance. We had a great deal of demand to deliver in Bentley, and we’re keeping our promise to do so, online, where we hope people can join our friendly facilitators.”

With a revised look, the FreeTech Project is moving forward with a fresh approach to delivery, not only via the relaxed and personalised learning in the workshops themselves, but via the launch of the FreeTech Forum where participants can choose to continue their learning and even help each other out.

Greater Bentley residents aged 18+ interested in attending these workshops can email to be kept informed on when free registration is open!
