To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, with reference to page 9, part 2 of the Government's Digital Strategy, published in March 2017, how many people Google plans to train through the Summer of Skills programme.
We are delighted Google have committed to launch a Summer of Skills programme in coastal towns across the UK. It will develop bespoke training programmes and bring Google experts to coach communities, tourist centres and hospitality businesses across the British coasts. This will accelerate digitisation and help boost tourism and growth in UK seaside towns. This new initiative is part of a wider digital skills programme from Google that has already trained over 150,000 people.
Further questions should be directed to Google.
