We will mark National Employability Day on Friday 29 June by partnering with Google Digital Garage to host a series of workshops in Southampton, supported by Southampton City Council.
The day will consist of three workshops led by a Google expert, plus a member of Radian’s Employment, Skills and Training team.
Each of the hour-long workshops has been designed to improve participants’ digital skills and confidence. Participants will have the opportunity to take advantage of hands-on coaching from a Google expert and develop crucial skills that are needed in an ever-changing digital landscape.
The first workshop will guide participants in how to build a CV, paying particular focus on how to define and highlight their skills. The second workshop will focus on social media strategy and how social media platforms can be used by businesses to reach new audiences and retain customers. The third workshop, with the hashtag #IamRemarkable, will focus on empowering women and underrepresented groups by developing their self-promotional skills and encouraging them to speak openly about their accomplishments and break modesty norms.
Chris Adams at Radian, said:
“Our Employment, Skills and Training team is committed to providing high quality opportunities for local people, empowering them with new skills and the support needed to help develop their careers. We are hugely excited and pleased to have partnered with Google Digital Garage. Google Inspires Southampton participants can expect to learn some very valuable online skills from one of the world’s biggest digital companies.”
Ronan Harris, Google UK & Ireland Managing Director, said:
'In the digital age, a basic understanding of how the online world works is useful and when it comes to business, it’s essential. We are delighted to bring the Google Digital Garage to Southampton and ensure everyone has access to free digital skills workshops and 1:1 coaching. We hope you'll pop in and get the skills you need to become more confident online, grow your career or business, and maybe even launch the next big idea."
