Digital Peninsula Network (DPN) has recently released their first set of training events in Plymouth in aid of delivering funded training for the Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) programme. The initial training courses were launched in May, with a total of 15 businesses taking part in the Digital Marketing course in Strategic B2C Social Media and 2 businesses organising bespoke training for their staff in website building, coding and Google Education at their establishments.
In 2001, Digital Peninsula Network began specialising in funded digital training and have since been delivering the Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) programme across Cornwall, upskilling hundreds of businesses a year in topics from IT skills and digital marketing to digital creative design software.
Managing Director of Digital Peninsula Network, Janus Howard said, "We are excited to branch out into a new part of the UK with our training. We have a range of projects operating in Cornwall, along the South of the UK, and as far as areas of France. However, this is our first opportunity to meet and train businesses in the Somerset and Devon area. We have a capable and experienced team, and we are aiming to support businesses across all sectors in the Heart of the South West LEP area with their Digital Skills needs."
DPN caters to a wide variety of training courses and can deliver both long and short-term training. With a diverse network of tutors and IT professionals to hand, Digital Peninsula Network can source the knowledge and expertise for almost any digital skill needs. Alongside this, they also specialise in advice and guidance specifically tailored for your digital skill requirements.
Accessible training for all scopes of abilities is at the forefront of Digital Peninsula Network, from the basic foundations upwards. On a recent course, two of DPN's attendees certified the immediate benefits and effects of their training on their approach and confidence to digital skills and marketing for their business.
"I found the course very relatable! I left the course with so much to think about and prepared to move forward with my digital marketing" – Sole Trader, Energy Sector.
"I loved the training. I now look at social media strategically instead of superficially" - External Relations Executive, Charity Sector.
The digital training aims to upskill both employees and sole traders amongst small and medium-sized enterprises within the South West, including start-up businesses, by delivering accredited qualifications and bespoke digital training courses. The digital skills gained during the courses will go on to increase the competitiveness of your business, as well as boosting the local economy. Digital Peninsula Network is part of Serco's network of adept organisations selected to deliver the SSW programme along with the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). This programme is co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) as well as the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) so that support and training for you and your workforce comes at no extra cost to the business.
