BLITZ (Blackbird Leys Information Technology Zone) was established in 2002 to meet a recognised need, in a national area of high deprivation. We offer free formal and informal IT courses which are open to anyone who lives in Oxford, whether employed or unemployed. We are based in the Blackbird Leys Community Centre.
Our vision and aims
We aim to develop digital literacy by providing learning opportunities for people in this low income, high unemployment area. We want to help disadvantaged individuals to access further learning opportunities to progress to employment and we provide a friendly, supportive community-based learning space in which to do this.
