Because our training focuses on getting students job-ready, our courses are really immersive. They build in plenty of time for students to learn and to put that learning into practice on a live campaign.
Unfortunately, until now this has meant we haven't been able to accept mums working full time because of the time commitment required for our training. But knowing that mums working full time are most likely in more need of #WorkThatWorks than anyone else, we are piloting an adapted version of our Social Media Management Course specifically with them in mind. This is an opportunity for students to upskill in social media marketing in a way that fits around a full time job and family life.
This pilot course requires a commitment of around seven hours per week (rather than the current 15), allowing full time workers to fit their learning in at evenings and weekends. Because there will be less training hours per week the course will take more weeks to complete, lasting a total of 41 weeks with nine weeks holiday.
We've put together this week-by-week breakdown of the course to give students a clear sense of what they'll be learning when. Over the year students will design and then deliver a live social media campaign over three major social media platforms. This will put them in a fantastic position after they graduate, as they’ll have 12 months of practical experience applying social media marketing. Throughout that time students will be placed in a peer group with six other mums and will attend regular video hangouts so they’re plugged into a community of like minded women going through the same experience from day one.
The pilot is set to kick off the 20th November 2017 and is set to finish the week of 4th November 2018. The cost of the pilot course is £2,100 including VAT, which you can either pay upfront or in two instalments. This is a significantly reduced price to what the eventual launch price will be and is limited exclusively to students that join the pilot.
Because this course is a pilot, we will ask you to give regular feedback on how you’re finding the experience. Your feedback will directly help to shape this course.
If you’re a mum working full-time, like the idea of being an early adopter and would be interested in joining our pilot at our reduced pilot price, you can go here to book in a call with our Admissions Team to find out more. If you’ve got all the information you need and want to apply right now, you can go here to find the application form.
And if you know other mums working full-time and in desperate need of a course that allows them to upskill in digital and find their own #WorkThatWorks then please do share this with them so they get the opportunity to have their say.
