Tees Valley digital skills courses from Teeside University

Teeside University is offering free digital skills training for public, private and voluntary sector professionals to support regional productivity and growth.

Public, private and voluntary sector professionals in the Tees Valley and County Durham are now able to sign up to free digital skills training – both technical and creative – following some quick thinking by Teesside University as part of its comprehensive response to Covid-19.

The Digital Skills for Growth programme was due to run as physical events but is now being offered as a series of online accredited courses. The courses will be delivered throughout the year and span a combination of half day and full day sessions meaning that public, private and voluntary sector workers from any industry and any size, including those on furlough, can immediately sharpen up their professional development in areas such as art for games and film, coding, data visualisation, developing personalised business intelligence solutions with Microsoft POWER BI, digital marketing, making sense of digital business, and web production.
