We’ve always known our training rocks, but we now have external validation that it does! As of the end of 2016, both our Social Media Management Course and our Social Media Marketing: Associate Programme are officially accredited with the CPD Standards Office, one of the UK’s foremost vocational and skills-based certification body.
To put this in plain English, it’s a big deal.
The CPD stamp of approval adds gravitas to students’ CVs or LinkedIn profiles and forms hard evidence to prospective employers of completing training that is heavyweight in the working world. It’s a third party endorsement to the excellence of our training. We know this is especially important for mums who have been out of the job market for a while and are seeking to upskill and find #workthatworks. Currently, 4 out of 5 of our graduates have found flexible work after completing our training (not to mention some finding work midst-course!). Our hope is that this helps push that number to 5.
Being CPD accredited also means that for each hour studied with Digital Mums, students will obtain CPD points. And we all know points make prizes. Or in this case, they make more points. For students who are members of professional bodies and required to achieve a certain number of CPD points or hours to maintain their licence to practise or chartered status, the Digital Mums training now counts towards this.
So, if you weren’t already convinced that our training rocks, take the CPD’s word for it. It’s official.
We’re down to the last few spaces for our February Course. If you're interested in kickstarting a new flexible career this year, then get in touch ASAP.
