Digital Mums

We train mums to be social media managers and then connect them to businesses who need their help with social media.

Social Purpose:
Maternal unemployment and the lack of flexible, remote options for women with kids, who get forced out of the job market.
Social Impact:
Increased confidence, increased well-being, increased general efficacy, meaningful employment, increased household income and reduced childcare and commuting spend. It's assessed through survey taken before mums start, once they finish, 6 months after, then every year after.
Innovative Character:
No other social media training course focuses on mums, and no other training for mums has the potential career prospects and lifestyle benefits.
