The Digital Leaders programme recognises the importance of Leadership in driving forward digital transformation in the UK.

Digital Mums delivers vocational online digital training courses to mothers who are looking to find a rewarding and flexible career path around their family commitments. We provide mothers with a nurturing and supportive environment to upskill and become a valuable resource to businesses.

In 2019 the digital skills gap continues to increase in the UK creating a major risk to business growth, innovation, and development within the working population. Tens of thousands of women are pushed out of their jobs each year due to pregnancy or maternity leave. Digital Mums addresses both serious issues with its unique learning style and online training courses. When you study with Digital Mums you become part of our community and support network, this continues far beyond the training courses.

Our recent 5 year Social Impact Report has highlighted that we’ve helped over 1,500 women find Work That Works. Our graduates have earned over £50,000,000 since studying with us. 48% of our students classified themselves as either unemployed or on a career break before studying with us. This figure plummets to just 8% post-graduation.
