Google opens third digital training space

Google has opened its third digital training space in Manchester as it aims to help 100,000 people in the UK find a job or develop their career.

The Google Digital Garage offers free digital skills training. The permanent space will have training courses for a range of abilities and cover topics such as how to get online for the first time, learning how to code and growing a business through social media.

It has been created by brand experience agency WRG, part of The Creative Engagement Group, and Dalziel and Pow. Google has similar spaces in Sheffield and Birmingham.

Russ Lidstone, chief executive of WRG and The Creative Engagement Group, said: "Working with Google on their drive to improve digital skills in the UK is a creative and inspiring process. The activity is proving to be really popular and we’re delighted by the take-up of free digital skills training."
