2019: Empowering individuals at SCALE with skills for the Future of Work
Upskill Digital was the UK campaign partner for the first time in 2019.
Upskill Digital is a digital skills training agency and consultancy, working with its partners to deliver scalable face-to-face training. Its programmes include the Google Digital Garage tours, Digital Skills for Africa and the Lloyds Bank Academy, amongst others.
During the All Digital Week, UpSkill Digital provided in-person training at 30 events, workshops and one-to-one mentoring sessions empowering over 1089 people across the United Kingdom.
In London, the Google Digital Garage Bus travelled to 6 boroughs, providing digital skills and mentoring for job seekers and small business owners.
As part of the Lloyds Digital Academy in Manchester, UpSkill Digital trained over 30 people on topics such as Online Safety & Devices or Digital Communications, with outstanding feedback like Natalie’s who said, “It has changed my life instantly. I’m able to look at Google and know all the functions available. Digital Communications was really good and I can now collaborate digitally.”
In partnership with Google Digital, UpSkill Digital provided training in universities, public libraries, job expos and business events, helping to upskill people with the necessary skills for their job and business success.

Good Things Foundation has been involved in the campaign since its very beginning. The campaign itself was inspired by their Get Online Week run in the UK by the Foundation and their Online Centres Network.
Good Things Foundation is proud to support ALL DIGITAL Week and encourage their community network of 5,000 Online Centres to represent the UK in a Europe-wide digital inclusion movement.
With more than 11.3 million people in the UK alone still without all the digital skills they need to make the most of the internet, campaigns like ALL DIGITAL Week – and the Good Things-managed UK Get Online Week – can play a vital role in reaching those in need.
The UK’s leading digital inclusion charity will be shouting about the importance of ALL DIGITAL Week to all their audiences through email and social media channels. Additionally, they’ll be sharing stories of people who have seen the benefit that improved digital skills can have, thanks to work Good Things Foundation has in communities across the country.
They’ll also be encouraging their 5,000 strong Online Centres Network to deliver events during the week and register them as part of the ALL DIGITAL Week campaign. The network is working in thousands of local communities and reaching those most in need of improved digital skills, making them ideally placed to support the campaign at a local level.
