1 digital mums THE Strategic Social Media Manager Programme COURSE BROCHURE

2 About Digital Mums Digital Mums are a new kind of social media solution. We take the natural talents and skills of mums, add some innovative social media training and produce affordable, quality social media managers for small businesses and charities. We offer mums the chance to retrain and get back into the workplace in a role that is fun, rewarding and most importantly fits around their family commitments. e w t f p /facebook/digitalmums /digitalmumshq Be job ready in 6 months with our innovative social media training Our online training has been designed using thinking from the most innovative education experts in the world today. It employs cutting-edge classroom methods that are proven to be significantly better than traditional practices. Unlike most courses out there on social media everything you do on our The Strategic Social Media Manager Programme will be practical, hands on and gets you work experience. From the start we match you with a business or charity who is keen to have a trainee mum manage their channels. We ll teach you how to put together a social media campaign and all the fundamentals of social media platforms and how to use them. Once you re up to speed you then run your campaign across their live channels. Working with the business or charity will also build your client relationship management skills. Our training is interactive. It s about learning as you go in a real world setting and learning from your mistakes. New research into how people learn demonstrates that it is much more powerful to learn this way, rather than watching endless tutorials and doing practice pieces of homework that only you and your tutor will ever see. This is because the content has meaning in your life. You will remember and learn more deeply if you are putting it into practice as you go along and if the public are actually seeing what you re doing and crucially, you re reporting back to a client. Ours is the only training course out there that gets you job ready in 6 months. With our training you don t just learn from pre-recorded video tutorials. You will have dedicated Google Hangouts with a digital expert who is there to help you learn. You ll also learn from your peers. You and the other mums are on a learning journey together and you will have regular online sessions where you will critique each other s work in a kind and helpful way. You will also brainstorm ideas together and share problems you are having. And unlike other courses out there we designed our training with and for mums. So we know you can fit it around your busy life. It s 100% remote. Video tutorials are short enough to watch when the kids are napping. Interactive sessions don t happen at peak mum times - they tend to happen when the kids are in bed. 2 3

10 before and during The training after The training Q: I haven t used social media platforms for a business before, only for my own - am I still eligible? A: That in itself means you are perfect for the training programme. We will teach you how to transfer your existing skills using social media to manage online communities effectively for businesses. Q: Do I need a background in PR or Marketing? A: We previously have required students to have this background. However, we are tweaking our eligibility criteria over the summer and redesigning our application process. From September, anyone will be able to apply for the course. However, a background in these fields definitely doesn t hurt your chances. Q: Am I guaranteed a place? A: Unfortunately not. We have a high level of demand for our course and a limited number of spaces. You ll have to pass our application process to get through. Q: Do I get a say in which business I will be matched with in the training? A: We want to match our students up with brands and businesses that are like-minded. Ideally we would want you to have an interest in that business. But beyond this we can t guarantee anything. Q: How many hours a week does the training require? A: You need to commit hours per week.this partly depends on you re own rate of learning. Q: What sort of computer equipment do I need? A: You need a decent smartphone and a device with a webcam - ideally a laptop. Q: Is the training all online? A: Yes! We do encourage everyone to meet their business if possible and we encourage students to meet each other outside of the training but this isn t compulsory. Q: Is there a guaranteed job at the end of the training? A: We cannot guarantee you a job. However, so far we have been able to find businesses for 100% of our mums that have passed our course and we plan to keep doing so. We get requests from businesses regularly for one of our students, so we re confident we can find you work. Q: Will the charity or business I work for during the training employ me afterwards? A: Again we can t guarantee you that they will. We try to pick organisations that have the potential to employ you afterwards, but the reason we match you with them is because you need to get live client management experience, which will make you much more employable. Even if they don t employ you, we will do our utmost to find someone who will. Q: What salary can I expect to earn at the end of the training? graduation to find out.

However, there are a couple of online sessions that are fixed in terms of date and time. Peer sessions are arranged when convenient to all the other students in your cohort.
