#GetOnlineWeek Careers Events

#GetOnlineWeek Careers Events 2020

It’s Get Online Week 19th-25th October and we’re encouraging Stockport residents to learn how to use the internet. Free virtual events will help people who aren’t very confident using the internet to improve their digital skills and make the most of the internet. And if you don’t have any way of getting online there are free-to-borrow devices and telephone support to help you get started.

A full list of virtual Get Online Week events in Stockport is available on our Events calendar.
