St Helens Chamber has opened Clickworks, an initiative that aims to help businesses enhance their digital skills and know-how, at the Hardshaw Street building after securing funding from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.
The project will see Clickworks team reaching out to businesses and people all over the borough to offer free digital skills training at times and venues that fit their lifestyle and work schedules.
Kath Boullen, chief executive of St Helens Chamber, said: “The chamber has always been at the forefront of delivering skills and services to help local businesses and people succeed, supporting our core mission to enhance the economic success of St Helens.
“In the modern workplace, digital skills are essential for businesses to thrive. We recognised that there was a significant need to improve the digital landscape of St Helens, so set out to develop and provide a new service that will build the digital capabilities needed.
Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram, added: “I am committed to ensuring that the Liverpool city region is the most digitally connected in the country and to make the most of that we need to ensure that businesses and individuals have the right digital skills to capitalise on the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
“It is impossible to overstate how important it is for the city region’s businesses to maximise the opportunities presented by digital connectivity, which is why Clickworks will be such an important addition to St Helens’ business support infrastructure.”
