The Digital Skills Partnership for the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) has partnered with Google to hold several free Google Digital Garage events across the SELEP area.

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 benefited from Google’s free face-to-face training on digital know-how across 500 locations in the UK.

Events are being run in December in Thurrock, Colchester, Basildon, Braintree and Ebbsfleet.


Topics covered during the workshops will include building a CV and cover letter; building a personal brand, exploring online branding and visibility; writing for social media, including dealing with customer comments and complaints; building presentations; and Google’s own #IamRemarkable series, which encourages attendees to realise their own achievements in their lives and careers.
