Local MSP Gil Paterson says that he is pleased to be hosting the Google Digital Garage Bus during its visit to Clydebank.
Google’s bus tour is part of its Digital Garage initiative, which provides free digital skills training to people across the UK so they have the knowledge they need in order to grow in their confidence, career or business. It also follows a successful launch of a high street training hub in the centre of Edinburgh and a presence in the Mitchell Library in Glasgow.
Google’s converted double decker Digital Garage bus will be in Clydebank Shopping Centre on Friday 26th October from 10am until 4pm and Mr. Paterson is encouraging Bankies of all ages to go along and get free expert advice.
The day will be split into three themed sessions and an Eventbrite listing has been set up so that people can register for each event but Mr Paterson is very keen to stress that anyone can drop-in at any time during the day.
The sessions planned for the event are ‘Stay Safe Online’ from 10am -11:30am; ‘First Steps Online’ 12noon – 2pm and ‘Build a CV’ 3pm – 4pm.
Speaking to the Clydebank Post, Mr Paterson said:
“I’m excited to be partnering up with The Google Digital Garage bus tour. The Google Digital Garage is a place where anyone can come and learn how to harness the power of the internet to grow their business, just learn more about the internet or develop new vocational skills.
“I think it is a great idea and I would urge anyone who is free on Friday the 26th October and would like to take advantage of free face-to-face coaching from Google internet experts to pop down to the shopping centre. If you want to learn new skills or even just increase your confidence, then this is for you.”
The Google Digital Garage bus tour was launched in 2017 and has visited over 100 locations across the UK so far. The bus will travel to over 50 locations in the Glasgow region offering free courses on a wide range of topics from how to build a CV to social media strategy.
