Facebook to deliver digital skills training to 10,000 women

Facebook is continuing to invest in digital skills development by joining forces with Enterprise Nation to support female entrepreneurs across the country.

The #SheMeansBusiness partnership will deliver training to over 10,000 women across the UK with a dedicated programme of nationwide events and online courses with potential to unlock £45m for the UK economy by the end of 2017.

Women taking part will have access to new online and offline training resources, created by Facebook in collaboration with Enterprise Nation, to provide them with the digital skills online and mobile tools they need to help them grow their organisations.

With 41% saying practical support such as digital skills training would help them when starting up an new organisation, the online Blueprint training programme will give women access to free resources they can use and digest at their own pace.

Additionally, a series of Enterprise Nation events will take place throughout the UK. To register interest for the events, go here.

The partnership is part of Facebook’s ongoing commitment to support UK women business owners through its #SheMeansBusiness initiative.
