Are you a small business owner or employee seeking to improve your impact in the marketplace? Essex Libraries has free digital training courses just for you. Google Digital Garage is a free course aimed at small businesses and budding entrepreneurs who would benefit from improving their digital skills to grow their business and reach more customers.
The course is made up of a wide range of short accessible video tutorials; from developing or improving your website, to selling online or reaching new customers. You don’t have to have a business to take part – the course is also suitable for those thinking of setting up a business.
After signing up, customers work through the course at their own pace, either in the library or at home. Some libraries are having weekly drop in sessions, with support from either volunteers or staff on hand. The courses are being supported in ten libraries across Essex – Chelmsford, Rayleigh, Rochford, Basildon, Laindon, Pitsea, Canvey, Wickford, Loughton and Harwich.
