Digital Boost

Digital Skills Training and Consultancy

Scotland's national programme of Digital Support provided through Business Gateway to start-up and growing businesses. Delivered through a mix of group training workshops, 1-to-1 consultancy, and dedicated online learning resources.

About the Project

In 2015, NSDesign won this Scottish Enterprise contract, and was named the primary supplier to deliver the ‘Digital Boost’ programme of workshops covering a range of digital skills across Renfrewshire, Ayrshire, Glasgow, Dumfries and Galloway, Inverclyde, and Dumbartonshire.

These workshops (targeted at ‘intermediate’ level participants) aimed to increase the knowledge and skills of attending businesses above and beyond that gained from existing Business Gateway training sessions. The Digital Boost contract also saw our team deliver specialist 1-2-1 digital marketing consultancy to Scottish businesses, providing up to 3 days of support helping them significantly develop their digital skills and existing online platforms to achieve better business outcomes.

In 2017, Business Gateway took over the running of Digital Boost, and NSDesign were again re-commissioned to continue delivering both the workshops and 1-2-1 consultancy services.  By the end of phase 2 (March 2018) NSDesign will have delivered approx 500 workshops, and 100 consultancy sessions – all to excellent feedback from both the end user businesses, and our clients – the various local authorities.

  • The delegate feedback results for Gary and his trainers are consistently amongst the best of all the sessions we run. They are reliable, professional, and are regarded as experts in their field. NSDesign has made a significant contribution to the development of our workshop content.
