Digital Skills Training

Google Digital Garage Edinburgh

Between May 2018 and June 2019 I worked with the Google Digital Garage Edinburgh (Scotland) as a digital skills coach and trainer in digital marketing.

My role was to deliver 1:1 sessions at the Digital Garage store on 42 Shandwick Place and running workshops specialising in how to use digital advertising, search marketing, and digital marketing to grow your business. I trained people in hands-on, practical digital skills – e.g., how to use a computer, spreadsheets, or email in the workplace.

Digital Skills Training

I deliver hands-on digital skills training both face-to-face and online, in Microsoft 365 (professional use of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook / Email communication, Teams), and AI tools. I was interviewed on my view on how to integrate digital and data skills in a video for the data skills gateway project at Edinburgh Napier University.

AI Literacy Training

Following the advent of ChatGPT in November 2022, I started researching and using generative AI (GAI), developing an AI literacy framework for workforce development, and AI training courses. This work is ongoing and I enjoy keeping up with the latest AI research and tools.
