There is no such thing as “business as usual” at the moment. There is nothing “usual” about the unprecedented crisis our society is in. However, we wanted to reach out to our community to let you know that we will be active throughout the Coronavirus crisis period and to update you on what we are doing.
Our priority is to do all we can to add value over the next few months to support you. We are sharing helpful content to support people to work in new ways given the challenges you will face over the coming weeks and months. We have updated our Work That Works Group to specifically focus on supporting you to work in these challenging times. You can join this here. We offer free courses and lessons and will be exploring additional free support over the next few months.
Ultimately, we would still like to be here to support you to learn and find rewarding careers when this is all over so we will be offering our normal portfolio of paid courses over the next few months and will be promoting and sharing them on social media.
While this may feel strange, and potentially uncomfortable, we do have to do all we can to sustain our business, our staff and our customers.
We’re not going to tell you that this is a great time to do online learning. That feels odd given everyone’s concerns around individual and family illness, school closures and potential loss of earnings during this time. However, our courses are 100% online and designed to be completely flexible, digestible and bite-sized should you wish to build new knowledge and skills over the next few months.
Our Foundation in Social Media Marketing course will be going ahead on 11th May should you wish to study this. As this is just 2-3 hours a week it’s manageable. However, Our Advanced Diploma in Social Media Marketing, due to start on April 20th, is 15-20 hours a week, which given school closures, would be a serious challenge. So we are currently speaking to our existing customers about how we might deliver this in a way that meets their current and future needs and we will have an update on admissions of this course next week.
Finally, we want to let you all know that while we all have to carry on, now is not the time for stoic resolve. Please let us know how you are feeling, air your concerns. We truly believe that a problem shared is a problem halved. We also have an incredible community of women with a host of skills and knowledge so please do also share any ideas and solutions, whether here or in our Work That Works Group.
