The scope of your organisation can extend well beyond traditional marketing practices, as brands are built where the attention is and the online world is only growing.

We are offering the solution of up skilling for free, by utilising government pots of money dedicated to your education. We are recommending to as many businesses and individuals in Scotland to embrace the digital world and kick off your learning journey with our fully funded programme. Within the programme you will be able to dive into 8 units – accredited and approved by national educational organisation NCFE.

Benefit from undertaking the Smartphone Videography for Business Course and Mobile Application for Business Course.
