Dacorum Communities for Learning (DCFL)

Dacorum Communities for Learning was established in October 2006.  The founding Chairman achieved funding with the support of Dacorum Borough Council to expand the Internet Café Project (Internet Cafés in local Community Centres) into an Adult Learning Project, alongside Highfield Neighbourhood Association.  Original partners were Highfield Community Centre, Bennetts End Neighbourhood Association, Gadebridge Community Centre and Grovehill Community Centre.  DCFL now operate in Tring Community Centre, Warners End Community Centre, Bennetts End Community Centre, and Adeyfield Community Centre.

DCFL provide training courses on a variety of subjects, including, but not limited to:

Computing for Complete Beginners

An Introduction to the Internet and Email

Basic MS Word 2010 in the Workplace

Further Microsoft Word

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft PowerPoint     

Microsoft Publisher

Introduction To Digital Photography

Most courses are 3-6 weeks long, with learners committing to a 2 hour session per week.

We use qualified tutors and volunteers help the tutor in the classroom.

We are funded by HAFLS (Hertfordshire Adult and Family Learning Services).

In January 2009 DCFL attained charity status, forming a strong Trustee Board.  The first AGM was held in March 2010 at Highfield Community Centre, with approximately 50 people in attendance.

In January 2009, due to expansion, DCFL’s main office relocated to premises in Warners End Community Centre.

DCFL is a member of the Dacorum Learning Partnership.  The partnership includes organisations involved in learning, and DCFL work with them on various projects.

DCFL relies on volunteers across the organisation, including Trustees and Learning Support. DCFL actively seek learners and volunteers by marketing their offer through other partners, the Volunteer centre, the Community Centres, the local press, at local events, and by word of mouth.
