Graduates are equipped with industry level digital marketing skills, enabling them to start in entry level positions or to embark on their own freelancing career. Practically, this means our students are armed with specific skills including managing email campaigns, social media management across all major platforms, Search Engine Optimisation, building excellent landing pages, and content creation.
Many of our students have not had enough exposure to the internal and interpersonal skills to be able to start, keep and grow in a job. These are skills that many people around the globe take for granted, including critical thinking, professional communication, leadership, problem solving, giving and receiving feedback, project & time management, curiosity, dealing with failure in the workplace and even personal budgeting. These skills are the foundation of iHub’s success, and at the same time, take the most deliberate investment and time to master.
Each iHub student has a professional mentor that helps them navigate the iHub journey. They also have access to in-house student support and an external referral network of professional counsellors should there be a need for more professional support on their personal journey. The personal support our students receive is a key ingredient to our success. Skills Development is not just about learning new skills – it’s about understanding who you are and dealing with your past to be able to confidently step into your future.
