Digital skills training for UK charities and community groups

Tue 26 Jun 2018

At a time when 45% of charities don’t have a digital strategy, despite more than 70% believing that strengthening their digital skills would help their organisation to grow its network and deliver a more effective strategy*, it is vital that charities are given the support they need to enhance their digital capabilities or they risk being left behind. However, this can often prove difficult for the majority of charities and local community groups when resources and budgets are stretched to their limits.

Giving UK charities and community groups a digital voice

That’s why Media Trust has launched a new UK-wide programme of digital skills training, delivered through local masterclasses, mentoring and online learning. This unique programme is being developed to help charities and community groups access the vital digital marketing training they need, in order to strengthen their communications capabilities and get their voices heard in a rapidly evolving digital world.

Continue your learning beyond the workshops

The programme will also provide charities with access to a range of online training resources so you can continue your communications and digital learning beyond the practical workshop sessions. Resources will be made available to charity professionals from a range of commercial and charitable partners, via Media Trust’s website.

How do I sign up?

The masterclasses will run from September 2018 until June 2019 and are free for charitable organisations to attend.

We will be adding dates and locations to the programme over the summer so stay tuned. 

If you would like us to organise a digital skills masterclass** for a network of charities or community groups you work with in your local area, then please get in touch: trainingandevents@mediatrust.org
