Free digital skills training for charities and community groups

To help charities enhance their digital capabilities, Media Trust has launched a free UK-wide programme of digital skills training, delivered through local masterclasses, mentoring and online learning. The initiative will run from September 2018 until June 2019.

Events in locations around the UK

Charities and community organisations will be able to sign up to attend free digital skills masterclasses in locations around the UK

The half-day masterclasses, with support from Google Digital Garage, will cover a range of topics from Social Media Strategy to Building a Digital Marketing Plan.

At these events, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss their specific digital communications challenges with, and receive advice from, a range of media partners and communications experts, learn from other charities as well as receiving digital skills training from a team of Google mentors.

Digital events

The programme will also provide charities with access to a range of online training resources so you can continue your communications and digital learning beyond the practical workshop sessions. Resources will be made available to charity professionals from a range of commercial and charitable partners, via Media Trust’s website.

How to sign up

The masterclasses will run from September 2018 until June 2019 and are free for charitable organisations to attend.

We will be adding dates and locations to the programme over the summer so stay tuned.
