From January 2019 we took a break from running our Diploma in Social Media Marketing Course to focus on developing some new, non-vocational training courses that better match our mission to help as many mums as possible find work that works around their children.
We first launched our six month Diploma course back in 2016, with the aim of upskilling mums from all backgrounds in a relevant, in-demand new career. And it worked! Our latest customer satisfaction survey shows that:
- Our graduates strongly agree that they are more employable as a result of completing the course (9/10) and that they feel ready to apply their skills as a Social Media Manager, (8.5/10) which at the end of the day is what our training is all about.
- Our graduates rate their overall satisfaction with the training as 8.5/10
- 4 in 5 of our graduate pool go on to find rewarding work that works for them
- 92% of our students complete the training, which is pretty incredible when you consider that the average online training course has an average of 5-13% completion rate!
Our graduates have gone on to work in big brands, agencies, startups and media companies. They do public speaking, run their own workshops, run their own consultancies and agencies and many have won awards for their groundbreaking work and campaigns. The businesses that hire our graduates know that they are getting extremely high quality candidates. We've been told by some that when Digital Mums graduates go for interviews, their CVs are instantly moved to the top of the pile. One client even said that when they heard the candidate was a Digital Mum they didn’t even need to interview her - she was just offered the job on the spot!
So, while we made the tough decision to call it a day on our Diploma in Social Media Marketing Course (you can read more about why here), if you're interested in learning more about our new non-vocational course, Foundation in Social Media Marketing, then sign up for more information here. If you're from a marketing or communications background then our Advanced Diploma in Social Media Marketing is business as usual.
