A Google double decker bus is parked outside the Guildhall on the High Street today to offer free advice and coaching on digital skills.

The ‘Google Digital Garage Bus’ will be parked on the High Street today (December 6) from 10 am until 4pm.

The project was organised in partnership with the London Evening Standard to support their Future London campaign, which aims to close the digital skills knowledge gap

Visitors can book a session in advance or drop in to get help with their CV and cover letter, be coached face-to-face and get advice on how to build a personal brand online.

The Google bus is set to visit 10 locations in South London in the run up to Christmas to help Londoners brush up on their digital knowledge and grow their confidence.

Ed Davey, MP for Kingston and Surbiton, said: “I’m delighted that Google are bringing the Digital Garage bus to Kingston upon Thames.

“Digital skills are increasingly important in modern day, and the Google Digital Garage bus helps to provide people with the skills and confidence they need to reach their full potential.

“I hope that the residents of Kingston will take full advantage of this fantastic opportunity.”

Ronan Harris, Managing Director Google UK, said: “We’re thrilled to bring the Google Digital Garage and, for the first time, offer free digital skills training to Londoners and businesses right here in the capital and specifically those in Kingston.”
