CECS: Basic Computer Literacy

Community Education Computer Society

Community Education Computer Society (CECS) is the oldest national computer nonprofit organisation established in April 1985 for the technological empowerment of the historically disadvantaged. CECS was born out of the concern of a group of progressive teachers in the Western Cape, who, having access to computers that Government had provided for the school, started investigating the possibility of using the computers to design media and lessons for use within the school environment. At a meeting where 250 primary and high school teachers were present, in April 1985, CECS was launched.

CECS is conducting a 10-day online course on Basic Computer Literacy from 6-17 June 2016.

CECS is on a drive to empower women in Gauteng with Basic Computer Skills. This initiative is supported by INTEL and is called Intel® My Digital Journey. The programme aims to close the Internet gender gap, connecting millions of girls and women to obtain work opportunities.
