_Content

Google has opened a pop-up Digital Garage to provide small Scottish businesses with digital skills training.

The space is being provided in partnership with Glasgow City Council and will run until January 2017.

Training

The programme will provide graduates, business owners, and other professionals with masterclasses and one-to-one mentoring.

Google is aiming to provide training to over 250,000 people to enable them “to learn crucial skills for the digital age” by the end of the year.

The Digital Garage will also provide online training for businesses to enable them to learn a wide range of skills.

Support

Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Keith Brown said: “Scotland already has exceptional digital talent and innovators. We recognise, however, we need to do more to help develop, nurture and expand digital skills across the country as a whole.”

He added: “The training and support delivered via Google’s Digital Garage is first class; I hope as many of our businesses and citizens as possible, at any age and stage, take advantage of this great opportunity to increase their digital skills and knowledge.”
