A NEW computer refurbishment diploma course has been launched by Hailsham-based Computers for Charities which has taken four years to develop, test and gain accreditation.

An official ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the arrival of the course was held at the charity’s headquarters in Station Road Industrial Estate on Friday, November 4.

Chairman Simon Rooksby said the achievement was ‘very much a first’ for the charity but ‘definitely not the last’, adding, “We are very pleased with the achievement that has been gained here.

“This course is indeed quite unique and we hope especially in this current economic climate will be of benefit locally and nationally.

“By providing the opportunity for skilling and retraining, it will be very suited for use in colleges, training centres as well as prison education where the concept was originally developed from our long standing association with HMP Lewes and a shortage of appropriate vocational courses.”
