Free:Formers: Make Digital Easy

Businesses recognise that digital is key to driving growth, so we help their teams learn the digital skills that will help them be more effective.

Our hands-on workshops are taught in plain English by the young people using digital everyday.

For every business person we train, we train a young person for free.

ONE:FOR1 = Business and Social impact.

Not sure  how to get started?

We run hands-on workshops that give you practical digital skills that can change how you work the next day. You'll learn the parts of digital tech you need to know, without getting lost in the detail.

One Day: Digital Accelerator
Engage better on digital with internal teams, clients and agencies

Understand the fundamentals of how the web works through a fast-moving hands on experience of the key areas of digital business.

  • Make an app, place an ad, use social media tools and understand how to use web services safely
  • Generate business ideas and learn how to rapidly prototype it

You'll never see digital technology in the same way again.

"It will help me challenge the delivery, costs and timings of our service providers."

Head of Marketing, Kimberly-Clark

One Day: Digital Marketing
Use multiple social advertising platforms to drive sales revenue

Learn how social platforms can deliver better, faster results by developing a social ad campaign and tracking its results in one day.

  • Learn new techniques to test and validate advertising strategies
  • Rapidly test propositions and understand audience targeting across multiple social platforms

Learn-by-doing training that is fast-paced, hands-on and immersive.

“The team were fantastic in walking us through all of the steps and I learnt so many news things! It’s rare that you go on a workshop and come away feeling like you've got new skills. I would highly recommend this workshop to everyone!”

Account Manager, UM

One: For 1

Our ONE:for1 model is simple - for each business person we train, we also train an unemployed 16-25 year old for free. This helps them to develop the digital skills they need for today's job market, so that they can earn a living in the rapidly growing digital economy.

We want to reach the young people who are turned off by IT lessons, who think coding is only for the most gifted, and who don’t yet see the increasing importance of digital skills across so many jobs.

Our trainers make digital easy and accessible, by speaking plain English and having fun. We show how technology can support their passion and creativity - whether it's music, sport, or fashion.

After doing a one-day workshop, we offer young people options for further training and development through a range of partner organisations that we work with. Together, we can deliver a meaningful and lasting impact on a young person's life.
