What do we need to run a talk or workshop for your business network?
The Get up to Speed programme is fully funded so there is no charge for us to deliver our sessions. Our aim is to engage with as many businesses as possible, so we try to run sessions in locations accessible for multiple organisations. We ask for a minimum of 15 people and a public venue, such as a meeting room with:

  • Disabled access
  • Wi-Fi and a power supply
  • Suitable seating and tables so people can take notes or use laptops

If you think your area or business network could benefit from a digital skills session, please contact us.
