Google is opening up a digital skills academy in Victoria, London, in which it hopes to "educate and inspire everyone" from school children to CEOs.
Earlier this month, Google finally submitted planning permission for a giant, 11-storey, 330-metre-long, £1bn building to be its new European headquarters near King's Cross. The development will create up to 3,000 new jobs by 2020, according to Google.
But the tech giant isn't finished there with its investment in the UK. Instead, it has designed a 3,700 square-metre building to be its academy, in a move supported by the government, as it wants to boost digital skills in the UK.
"London's ambition to grow, harness new technologies, and build the brightest and best companies has been a constant over the last decade," said Google UK managing director Ronan Harris.
"When the tech community with industries ranging from fashion and music to automotives and artificial intelligence have worked in partnership with government, the mayor's office and passionate communities supporting startups and scaleups, new jobs have been created and London has shown it can lead the way in a competitive global environment," he added.
The new campus is designed with a beach theme, and comes equipped with an electric cinema, funfair-styled auditoriums and a ‘cloud promenade' - a space for workshops.
Meanwhile, if the planning permission is granted, Google's HQ will have a roof-top garden, a running track, a swimming pool and massage rooms. It will also have floor-to-ceiling windows, a range of cafe's and restaurants and a games area.
The Google Academy will open this week, and building works for Google's new HQ is scheduled to begin in 2018.
