Hosted in conjunction with BWorks and The Extraordinary Club, the Digital Skills Programme is part of a Europe-wide initiative led by technology giant Facebook, to help develop the confidence and skills for employment in the digital economy – helping students, peoples and businesses alike to stay ahead of the curve and upskill themselves for any point in their education or careers.

Life hacks, know-hows, tips and tricks to live better and work smarter are the main focus of our fully-funded, fun and fast paced taster Facebook Digital Skills Training. They will leave you with invaluable digital tools to use in your everyday life.

In this half-day session we will cover:

  • Innovation – we teach the industry lead process of Design Thinking and apply this practically. We show you how to problem solve the way the experts do and create your own prototype.
  • Cyber Security – we help you to understand the dangers of the web and provide core methods to protect yourself including how to spot a phishing scam and even see into the lives of a hacker and how easily they can gain information.
