Google’s free digital skills training program Grow With Google will visit all states and territories in 2020, making training available for people right across Australia.

Grow with Google aims to give all Australians access to digital skills training, both online and in-person, to help them make the most of the Web.

I shared this news in front of 200 small businesses, community organisations and individuals today at a Grow with Google event at the Cronulla Sharks Leagues Club.

At today’s event, local Sutherland Shire businesses learned how to grow their presence online and find new customers, and individuals at all stages of the digital journey picked up new skills and tips.

It was great to bring these workshops to the Sutherland Shire to help more people get the digital skills they need to grow and thrive.

We are thrilled to be taking Grow with Google national in 2020, visiting metropolitan and regional centres across Australia so that everyone has the opportunity to participate.

Since 2014, Google has trained more than half a million people across Australia through online and in-person digital skills training, as well as curriculum integrated through school and partner programs.

Grow with Google aims to create opportunity for all Australians to grow their skills, careers, and businesses with free tools, training, and events. The next Grow with Google event will be held in Canberra on 11 September. Find out more at:
