New digital training fund opens to public sector employees

The Tech Partnership has opened its training fund to cover up to 50% of the cost of ADBL digital courses for public sector employees, available on a first come, first served basis.

Each public sector organisation can apply for £500 per employee for any number of staff.

This is a fantastic opportunity for companies to upskill their staff with the latest digital marketing skills, which are vital for companies if they are to remain competitive in today’s market. We expect interest to be high and, as there is a set amount of funding available for each quarter, I would encourage companies interested to apply soon,” said John Pritchard, Programme Manager for the Tech Partnership.

The range of courses are developed with Google, the IDM and executives from John Lewis, HM Cabinet Office, Warner Music, Sky, HSBC and more, delivering training for an organisation’s entire digital team – from junior assistants right through to senior managers and executives.

The award-winning courses cover key digital topics including Big Data, Digital Transformation, Social Media, App Development and Google Analytics.

Eligible training programmes include:

  • The ADBL, Diploma in Digital Business Leadership
  • Squared Online, for Digital Marketing Leaders, in partnership with Google
  • IDM Online, Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing
  • Dot Native, Certified Short Courses in Digital Marketing

The Tech Partnership are encouraging employers to submit their applications quickly and to reserve funding for as many places as possible while it’s still available, as this can be reduced once funding is confirmed. To reserve some of the training fund request a Training Fund Pack or email
