As we announced in our birthday blog last week, from January we are taking a break from running our Social Media Management 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. This means that November 2018 and January 2019 will be the last cohorts we’ll be running for the Social Media Management Course. Our Social Media Marketing: Associate Programme is business as usual, but if you’re not from a marketing or comms background and want to be job-ready in a completely new career within six months, then it’s now or never!
We first launched our six month Social Media Management 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 have made the tough decision to call it a day on our Social Media Management Course (you can read more about why here), if you want to be one of the above success stories - no matter what your career background - then now is the time to sign up!
