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

Our Digital Skills Training is for anyone 18+ who wants to upskill themselves in their current role, refresh their skill set, who is looking for help with their future employment or simply just curious about what the sessions involve.

Join us for the next 3 modules of our Digital Skills Training, where we take you through:

  • 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.
  • AI (Artificial Intelligence) - we debunk the main misconceptions of AI, along with algorithm creation and how we use this to automate different tasks. We explain the connection between algorithms, AI & automation
  • Data – we explain how data isn’t just numbers and spreadsheets and how beneficial data is including the identifying key factors that you should consider when making decisions. We also define key data terminology.

At the end of the session, after completing an evaluation survey, you will receive a Facebook Digital Skills Certificate which is a great addition to any CV.

Alongside this you will have your own personalised Future Workforce Model created by Freeformers who create digital transformation programmes. This model which they have created, highlights your own learning style as well as areas for development.

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.
