Free digital workshops for region’s businesses

Businesses based in the Amble, Alnwick and coastal areas are being urged to attend free digital introductory workshops run by the iNorthumberland Business Support Team.

The next workshop will run between 1pm and 4pm next Thursday at Amble Development Trust.

It will enable businesses to meet with expert advisors to find out about how social media, cloud computing, search-engine optimisation and much more is affecting everyday business.

The bespoke support programme – delivered by Arch, The Northumberland Development Company – is fully funded and focused on helping businesses to capitalise on online technology in order to manage and grow their business online.

Offering high-quality digital training courses, the programme includes one-to-one sessions with experienced business advisors in a workshop setting, access to an online learning portal, focused master classes and financial incentives.

Eligible businesses that complete 12 hours of training will qualify for 12 months of free superfast broadband – worth up to £400 – or will be able to claim back the cost of installation if they already have superfast broadband.
