About Digital Gum

Digital Gum was launched to help apprentices and return-to-work parents fast-track their digital careers and land their dream job.  The problem we are trying to solve is two-fold; for returners and apprentices it’s about giving them the in-demand digital and work-ready skills they actually need – social media marketing, app design and coding through to VR and SEO – in an accessible way. For employers, we’re widening the talent pool, in a flexible and practical way, nurturing the much-needed skills sets they actually need in their business.

“The course exceeded my expectations - I learnt so many new skills and I met some great, inspiring people. It’s given me the self-belief and motivation I needed to further my career and I’m actively looking at opportunities in this area. For anyone thinking about it, I’d say “Go for it!”
