Google brings Digital Garage to Colchester Institute

The Digital Skills Partnership for the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) has partnered with Google to hold a free Google Digital Garage event at the Colchester Institute’s Sheepen Road campus on the 11th December 2019. 


The Google Digital Garage is one of Google’s flagship investment programmes in the UK, where anyone can come and learn free digital skills through a range of courses or 1:1 sessions. Since launching the Google Digital Garage in 2015, over 400,000 people have benefitted from Google’s free face-to-face training on digital know-how across 500 locations in the UK. 


Businesses and residents will have the opportunity to work with Google trainers to develop their digital skills. This free training workshop is open to anyone aged 16 and over, including students, job seekers, small businesses and freelancers. 


Topics covered during the workshop will be split into three sessions, comprising building a CV; building a personal brand, exploring online branding and visibility; and Google’s own #IamRemarkable series, which encourages attendees to realise their own achievements in their lives and careers. 


South East LEP DSP Coordinator James Wilkinson said: “We’re delighted to be working with Google and local organisers to provide these fantastic opportunities for people across Essex, Kent and East Sussex to improve their digital skills.” 


Each session on the day is limited to 50 spaces, so make sure to sign up soon.
