    Electronic Village (formerly Disabled People's Electronic Village Hall) is an IT training organisation delivering learning to disabled and disadvantaged adults throughout West Yorkshire.

    Many of our students use computers to benefit themselves, learn new things, improve their employment opportunities or just to come in and socialise.

    We are a registered charity and have been in operation since 1994.

    There is a variety of courses available to suit all abilities from the absolute beginner through to the more advanced. Courses include Introduction to Computors, Digital Photogrophy, Office Skills, and Employability Skills.

    Please see our website or contact us for more details.

    We also have a weekly Job Club and IT Drop In.

Normally we add categories for you when the entry is set up, but you have the option to edit them. Very occasionally some categories have restricted usage and we’ll let you know if we feel there’s a problem.

The categories are tiered with the broadest first. Click on the plus sign till you find the specific categories that best suit your group.

  1. The Electronic Village Hall began life many years ago with just 3 members of staff and a single classroom catering for disabled adults only.

    Since then it has expanded into 2 classrooms, and 11 members of staff, plus numerous volunteers who cater for adults of all ages and abilities throughout West Yorkshire.

    Our courses are aimed at increasing confidence, gaining qualifications and opening a pathway back into work, or for those who just wish to get out of the house and meet new people!
