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.

As a coach, I delivered 1:1 sessions at the Digital Garage store on 42 Shandwick Place. I also ran workshops specialising in using 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

Today, I continue to provide hands-on digital skills training both face-to-face and online. My focus is on workplace digital skills, particularly Microsoft 365 (professional use of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook / Email communication, Teams), and AI tools. I share my views on how to effectively integrate digital and data skills in a video for the data skills gateway project, in which I took part.

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 will continue to be developed for clients both in the public and private sectors.
