Patrick has worked in digital marketing training for years and recognises the skills gap within the market; "Employers are looking for marketers with a toolbox of digital skills as well as an understanding of the wider marketing landscape. Undergraduates and recent graduates are seeking new ways of learning and upskilling digitally. We see Facebook’s Community Boost Programme as an excellent fit, even if people don't have a marketing related degree".

Newry has an exceptionally bright future and our education system, teachers, lecturers, schools and facilities are world-class. Buzzstart Academy are partnering with a number of Further Education Colleges, Universities and Councils to deliver the Facebook programme throughout the region. Workshop modules include Innovation where you will work in groups to brainstorm your next big business idea, wireframe the idea and build a prototype tech solution all within 60 minutes. Other modules include: Social Media; Cyber Security; Web Presence; Artificial Intelligence and Data.

The modules are underpinned by Freeformer’s Future Workforce Model, which seeks to understand what employers want, what skills citizens need and bridge any gaps between the two. The model consists of 12 attributes, which research indicates are vital to workers being productive, engaged and ready for the future of work. Some of the soft skill attributes include: Self-Leadership; Resilience; Metacognition; Imagination; Integrity and Empathy.

Patrick says of the opportunities this training can bring: “We can build businesses today from our bedrooms. We don’t need to be in London or New York to find opportunities, learn skill-sets or build global tech businesses. However, we do need an introductory steer, some signposting and a sprinkle of valuable mentorship from world-class trainers and entrepreneurs. That’s exactly what you will get with these workshops delivered by our team of expert trainers.”

Keith Kilpatrick, Director of Curriculum at Southern Regional College commented: “The college believes this course will provide the latest thinking alongside practical knowledge and skills required for a career in the fast-paced digital marketing arena, SRC are delighted to be part of this exciting initiative and welcome the opportunity to enhance the digital skills and employability prospects of their students”.

Each workshop is 4-hours and participants will obtain a Facebook certificate of completion.  "Our expertly selected team of trainers are the best in the UK and Ireland, and they work daily with Facebook, Google, Shell and Estee Lauder to name a few global giant brands" says Patrick. "You are getting the best entry-level digital skills training in the world in my honest opinion, for free.”  If you are interested in attending or would like further information please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
