Centre first opened its doors to the public in 1996.We were the first
Internet Bureau in Eastbourne and a new category to trade had to be
created by the council.
We soon became a much needed resource centre for the local
community of all ages and all walks of life and visitors to Eastbourne
and surrounding area.
In February 2001 we became one of the first 1000 UK Online
Centres in England because of our work with the local people and later
that year we won the BT Community Award
As time went by it became more and more apparent that some
learners wanted more than introductory courses and so we became an
approved OCR Centre, and an accredited ECDL Test Centre. People can use
our facilities for Learn direct courses online.
This year we realised that it was time to find new premises and on 2nd April we relocated.
The Centre is
situated 2 minutes from Eastbourne Railway Station.
Going by the comments we've heard since the opening the new
location is much more comfortable and suitable for learners and for us
tutors too as we don't have the interruptions of the cyber café.
We now intend to continue our good work with the local community
and everyone, regardless of their learning ability or ICT learning
requirements, is welcome at Global Information Centre.
