   What is SeniorNet ?

To Return to Home Page- use Link in the Left Column

SeniorNet  was the result of a research project, which discovered a need for ‘peer training at your own pace’.  There are now around 90 SeniorNet Learning Centres in  New Zealand.

 More information is available on the Federation Website at


SeniorNet is a non-profit-making organisation, which aims to give computer training to people over the age of 50, so they can become confident and competent using computers with Microsoft Windows operating system.  This centre, SeniorNet Canterbury does not provide training on Macintosh or Apple computers. 


Training is provided on a voluntary basis by tutors who are also members of SeniorNet. A wide range of Courses and Workshops is available, for which reasonable charges are made to cover the Society’s running costs. 


SeniorNet allows members to keep up with modern technology and gives them an opportunity to learn new computer skills. 


The monthly timetable is on this Website; classes and workshops are held each work-day, except Thursdays, when Committees and Special Interest Groups meet. See Courses Availability and Workshops Availability alongside.

Help: "Drop-In" Help and Course Practice Sessions are available to all members on Tuesdays from 12.00 noon to 2.00 pm.

Social Afternoons – at which there are some interesting speakers (see Home Page for next Topic) – are held at 2.00 pm on the third Thursday of each month, except January, when no meeting is held.  In December, the Social Afternoon is usually held on the second Thursday of the month.  Refreshments are served after the Speaker has drawn the raffle prizes, and members are then able to socialise and exchange ideas and information on all manner of subjects. 

Tutors: The Society at present has around 20 tutors, all of whom volunteer their time and expertise.
