about

You Can Learn It Ltd is a small company which was set up in August 2007 by Sheila Mackay to offer learning opportunities for people with disabilities to use computers. Sheila had experience of working with people with disabilities in the local community and noticed that many had restricted access to the Internet through lack of knowledge of assistive technology. With a "can learn" attitude, she aims to reduce barriers to learning by developing her own skills to help people using computers as tools for learning and communication.
A small grant and support from Scotland Unltd helped the company to get started and then local organisations began to get involved by booking workshops and training. The company works with community groups to deliver workshops and short term projects. Tutoring is offered with the support of UCanDoIT, a London based charity now developing work in Scotland for people with disabilities.
Sheila designs websites and online networks for small businesses and community organisations. She also works with Equal Futures, an Edinburgh based charity as the I.T./ E-Development Advisor and has worked with Perth College to deliver courses for students with additional support needs. These courses included website and social network projects, encouraging students to develop and learn new skills with the use of the Internet. Sheila is currently working with a local school, teaching pupils with additional support needs.
