Make learning manageable with our range of not-for-profit short courses

Sadly we are seeing our community struggle at the moment. Many members of our community of freelancers are losing clients and those employed are handling the stress and uncertainty of being furloughed or even worse - being made redundant as business owners react to the extreme challenges they face.

With no end to lockdown in sight and no exit strategy announced it’s still unclear how long this will last. Sadly, recent warnings suggest that a prolonged lockdown could result in over 6 million people in the UK losing their jobs.

With less work available it stands to reason there will be more competition for roles. So being on top of your professional development and skills is more important than ever.

However, our recent Locked Out Of Learning research highlights the struggles mothers face accessing learning opportunities with cost, time and headspace the biggest barriers. And at the moment mothers are even more stretched in these areas than normal. Home-schooling and having everyone at home 24/7 is reducing the already limited time they have available to invest in themselves. Being able to consider learning opportunities right now may seem impossible.

So while it’s clear that online training is crucial it mat seem out of reach to many.

To try and support our community to upskill in a way that overcomes these barriers we are launching some not-for-profit short courses that require just 1-2 hours of learning each week. They have a fixed hour masterclass with an expert each week and we’ll suggest some optional reading and a simple weekly challenge for those that can spare a bit more time.

First up we have a series of short courses building supplementary skills important around social media marketing. Each weekly masterclass takes place on the Thursday evening at 8pm and is recorded and shared afterwards. We will be announcing more throughout the year.
