DigitalBoost is Scotland’s national digital skills training programme, providing a free, comprehensive range of local workshops and online tutorials designed specifically to support SMEs’ development into digital technologies.
Fully funded workshops throughout Scotland are led by a team of digital experts and include topics such as social media, e-commerce, digital strategy, cyber security and creating engaging content. As the digital sphere continues to evolve, the DigitalBoost programme adapts to meet current and emerging trends that may be pertinent to businesses, such as vlogging.
Additionally, businesses that need extra support on digital topics can receive up to 21 hours of one-to-one support from digital advisers. Since the launch of DigitalBoost in 2016, over 36,000 hours of one-to-one support have been provided, free of charge, to over 2000 businesses.
Another key component of the DigitalBoost service is a five-minute online health check businesses can take to assess their digital strengths and weaknesses, guiding them to relevant support.

DigitalBoost is funded by DigitalScotland and delivered by Business Gateway.
