INFORMATION & COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY
Our communication training is focused on various aspects including teaching our clients skills such as specialised time-telling, using mobile and landline telephones, basic typing skills and presentation skills.
Another important aspect for our clients is being able to identify their money while performing transactions at shops, banks and ATM’s. These skills all play an important role in how our clients participate in society.
