Following on the success of the iPad course last year, we have had a great start to
the Android Tablet Course at Alwoodley Community Centre for MEACare. Unlike iPads, which are all very much similar in operation. Android as an Operating System comes in many flavours and versions, but it also has a number of different manufacturers and the tablets do not always work exactly the same in terms of menus, controls etc. This makes for very interesting and interactive sessions. Looking forward to next Tuesday, hopefully we will have some photos…..
Learners with Joyce the Tutor at the last session of the Speaking English Course for Happy Global Families in Beeston
Great first week of the of the new term on the Speaking English Class at Happy Global Families in Beeston. Big thanks to Joyce Horsbrough the Tutor for the hard work in preparing this course over summer
Steve delivered a 6 week iPad for Beginners Course for MAECare in June. The course was very accessable and Steve made sure that it was pitched at the correct level for our members. The participants found the course to be very instructive but fun. One of our particuipants feedback: “The trainer was approachable and sensitive to the requirements of the students”. We are planning to use Steve again to deliver future training. Barbara, of MAECare, June 2016
This week we were able to present certificates to a group of the ladies who completed the Speaking English Course provided by Ledgard Consulting, at Beeston Village Community Centre. The photograph shows some of the 15 students from many countries, including China, Sri Lanka, Russia, Moldavia, all who successfully passed the Level 1 Course which was led by Tutor Joyce Horsbrough.
Global Happy Families is a group of ladies who meet each week for breakfast, conversation and some activity which will help improve skills for everyday life. Last term Ledgard Consulting provided a six week basic computer course and this term, the same ladies, who were joined by many others embarked on a six week ‘Speaking English’ Course.
The course is designed for those who use English as a second language and each week a different scenario is looked at. Examples are: Transport in all forms, cars, buses, trains etc; Medical Matters, going to the doctor, dentist, health clinic, hospital etc; and School, what children learn, parents’ evenings, terms children will use about school etc. The scenarios based learning technique is a mixture of photographs, key words, pronunciation and also an understanding of the scene itself. For example the Post Office scenario, would include key terms used in a Post Office but also what services are available, i.e, 1st Class and 2nd Class post, special delivery, signed for parcels, envelope sizes etc and other services that are complex to understand or explain.
The Level 2 course is booked for September and all the students are looking forward to that.

Many people these days have an old shoe box filled with old photographs that their parents left them, perhaps it has benn filled more recently with more prints from when the children were growing up!!! What is these prints get damaged or lost, they are gone forever. Ledgard Consulting can now provide protection for those precious memories.
We can scan prints, colour slides, negatives (35mm and 120), store them digitally and provide you with a DVD or memory stick, including an online backup for 12 months if required.
We are also able to restore old and damaged prints, remove scratches etc (subject to the amount of damage)
We have competative prices and there is no minimum charge, no job too small, although a delivery cost may be incured.
Ledgard Consulting also undertakes the teaching of digital photography as part of the committment to all things TECH. To this end, we are creating a series of short lessions for beginners to the world of photography. These are intended to accompany a 30 min talk on the subject in question. All the images used in the slides are taken from royalty free via the web, however, as time goes on, we are going to ask the photoclub members to contribute and make it into a community built resource. The quality of the Youtube Video is not as good as we would like, we are looking at different ways to record it going forward. Plus a few tweeks on the slides to do as yet, but a good starter. The video link is below.
Ledgard is expanding its area of operations to more of West Yorkshire, we can now deliver classes and services in both Wakefield and Bradford
