Google is opening a pop-up workshop in Leeds in a bid
to help local businesses improve their digital skills. The Digital
Garage project will see Google give advice on
how companies can use the internet to reach more customers and grow
faster.

The six-month trial in Leeds will
open on 30 March and include a digital “tune-up” service for
small businesses. Aspiring
entrepreneurs are also encouraged to attend events organised by
local partners and book one-to-one mentoring sessions on digital
business skills.

As part of the project Google is investing in computer
science and coding training for around 25,000
teachers. Working in partnership with Code Club Pro, Computing at
Schools and Raspberry Pi, it will run
workshops and events for teachers in local schools alongside online
training resources. Raspberry Pi computers will also be donated to
local schools.

Google plans to expand the project to four other
UK cities, although it hasn’t announced where it will go
next.

Business owners and teachers in the Leeds area can
register for workshops and other events being run at the pop-up by
visiting digitalgarage.withgoogle.com.
