Hello. We're Thirty8 Digital, and this is our training portal.

We’re a little digital agency that among other things provides lots of training in digital stuff. We’re people who understand technology, but also pride ourselves on being able to translate geeky things into something that normal humans understand and can use.

We work with people who want to increase their understanding of digital technologies in what can be a fast changing and slightly bewildering landscape. Typical questions we try to help people answer include things like:

  • how much time should I spend doing social media?
  • what tools can I use to measure our online impact?
  • how can I make my organisation think in a more joined-up, digital way?
  • do I need a digital strategy, and if so – how can I make this happen?
  • how can we get our museum collections data online in a cost-effective way?

Our training is available in two main formats, depending on the topic:

Online Courses

Our online courses typically take 6-8 hours to complete. As the title suggests, this training takes place entirely online – all you need is a web browser, an internet connection and the time to spend reading through the material and taking part in the practical activities.

You can choose to take the course at whatever pace suits you: do it all in one go – put aside a day and blitz through the materials – or take your time and spend a few weeks. Once you’ve signed up you can login whenever you want for up to 3 months.


We run workshops at a venue and time of your choosing. Normally they happen over a day, but we are flexible and can adjust to fit your schedule.

The workshops are friendly, hands-on, personal sessions. Workshops can be tailored to individual organisations and individuals – beforehand we normally ask you for specifics about you and what you want to get out of the session and afterwards we follow up with an hour of post-workshop time either via email, Skype or phone.

You’ll be working with Mike Ellis, a web professional with over 10 years experience running training courses. Mike is an experienced speaker, trainer and author – you can find out more about him over on the relevant page of the main Thirty8 Digital website.
