Google launches first of five “digital garages” in Leeds
UK-wide workshops will look to help small and medium businesses improve their online presence and digital skills
Tech giant Google has announced that it is launching a series of five “digital garages” across the UK to help small and medium businesses improve their digital skills, starting in Leeds.
Intended to help improve Britain’s digital economy, the “digital tune-up” workshops will run until the end of 2016 and Google is hoping 200,000 UK businesses will benefit from the programme.
As part of the scheme, some 25,000 teachers will also be offered coding lessons at the garages.
While the other four UK locations are yet to be announced, the Leeds garage will open on 30 March and will run for a six month trial period.
