You can get free digital skills training

Nusrat Ghani, MP for Wealden, has teamed up with Google UK to provide a day of free digital skills workshops and mentoring session with Google coaches to help Wealden entrepreneurs upskill and grow in an increasingly digital world.

Google Digital Garage is a whole-day in-person digital skills training programme of workshops and mentoring sessions to help small businesses develop high impact tech skills and grow their presence online. Attendees can also benefit from private mentoring sessions with Google’s Digital coaches to focus on personal goals for their business growth.

Launched in 2015, Google’s Digital Garage programme has trained over 800,000 people, in more than 500 cities, towns and villages across the UK, and it is now coming to Crowborough next week.

The event will take place on Friday 22 September, 10:00-16:00 at Crowborough Rugby Club, Steel Cross Green Lane, Crowborough, TN6 2XB.

The event is free and open to all small businesses located in Wealden.

Spaces are limited and prior registration is required, so businesses are invited to sign up as soon as possible via: https://rsvp.withgoogle.com/events/wealden.

Workshop topics will include: 

  • Digital marketing strategy
  • Boost your productivity with AI
  • Build your personal brand online 
  • Track website traffic with Google Analytics


Nusrat Ghani said: “This is a great opportunity for our local businesses to speak to Google’s trainers and learn how to boost their online strategies, upskill and grow. The event is free, but spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. I am pleased to have secured this fantastic event and I look forward to welcoming Google to Wealden and seeing businesses from across the constituency in Crowborough on Friday 22 September.”
