Digital Skills Training from The Extraordinary Club in partnership with facebook join us this afternoon.

The Digital Skills Training Programme by Facebook and Freeformers focuses on enabling you to develop the confidence and skills you may need for your future employment and keeping up to date in the digital economy.

This programme forms part of a Europe-wide initiative led by technology giant ‘Facebook,’ to help people and businesses grow and equip everyone with the digital skills they need to compete in today’s workplace.

This workshop looks at general digital skills and is not specific to Facebook.

IN THIS WORKSHOP

  • Cyber Security – we help you to understand the dangers of the web and provide core methods to protect yourself including how to spot a phishing scam and even see into the lives of a hacker and how easily they can gain information.
  • AI (Artificial Intelligence) – we debunk the main misconceptions of AI, along with algorithm creation and how we use this to automate different tasks. We explain the connection between algorithms, AI & automation
  • Data – we explain how data isn’t just numbers and spreadsheets and how beneficial data is including the identifying key factors that you should consider when making decisions. We also define key data terminology.

At the end of both sessions, after completing an evaluation survey, you will receive a Facebook Digital Skills Certificate which is a great addition to any CV.

Alongside this you will have your own personalised Future Workforce Model created by Freeformers who create digital transformation programmes. This model which they have created, highlights your own learning style as well as areas for development.

Registration is from 2:30 – 3:00pm, however if everyone arrives promptly, the workshop may start before 3.00pm. Tea and coffee will be provided.

These workshops are partially funded by the U Start project to support students, graduates and university staff to unlock their entrepreneurial potential and become enterprise ready.
