The converted double decker bus, which has been turned into a digital training hub stopped in Harrow town centre over the weekend after Gareth Thomas MP got in contact with the digital giant to secure one of the final stops of the Digital Garage tour.
Job seekers and local businesses were given free advice and coaching on their digital skills to help with engaging employers, or growing their business, career or confidence.
The free skills bus delivered courses and one to one coaching on topics including website building, an introduction to digital advertising, social media strategies, and CV building.
Harrow was named the best all round Small Business Friendly Borough in 2015, for its work in promoting start-ups and business growth.
Gareth Thomas, MP for Harrow West said: “We have a number of successful small businesses in Harrow and it has become increasingly important for businesses to develop the digital skills necessary to create a stronger presence online. This is why I have arranged for the Google “Digital Garage” team to visit, to share resources and skills that can support our local businesses.”
Following the success of Gareth’s Third Annual University Fair with Whitmore High School in February, Mr Thomas has arranged for Google to host a CV and Cover letter workshop at his upcoming Careers Fair, with Rooks Heath College.
The Careers Fair will take place on the evenings of June 17th and 18th from 5-8PM and is open to all students in Harrow planning their future – whether that be going to university, becoming an apprentice or training for a job.
