base-line computer and typing skills
daily access to a reliable computer (Monday to Friday, 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.)
reliable internet service
a comfortable chair
a workspace away from distractions

Please note: learners will be expected to open and save Word documents, email and send attached files, as well as access lessons and materials shared on Moodle and Microsoft Teams).

Our re-launch plans continue to move forward in a cautious manner where staff and student safety comes first.
