Stepping UP is an ICT (information and communications technology) training programme targeted at people in Computers in Homes communities.

Participants are encouraged to 'step up' and use their digital skills to access further learning and enhance their job opportunities.



The Stepping UP programme helps people build their computer and online skills. The programme involves a series of learning modules that we call ‘digital steps’. Each module is designed to take between 2 and 2.5 hours to complete with the support of a tutor. A wide range of digital steps are available; participants choose the modules best suited to their needs and interests.

We also have a mobile classroom named Dora in Christchurch. Follow the blog for more information:
