The role of online education is changing the world – we are opening doors where there were no doors before, giving opportunity to people who may never have had the chance to learn these skills otherwise. You no longer need a tertiary education to be incredibly successful in life: all you need is determination and a helping hand.
As a teacher, a business owner, and a woman who has experienced personal tragedy, I want to make business education accessible to ALL women, no matter their circumstances.
“The world is absolutely becoming a better, more open, more accessible place because we’re all teaching others how to do things. No admission boards, no 6-figure student loans, no need to live in a country of privilege. We can all teach whomever will listen.” – Paul Jarvis, online course creator ChimpEssentials.com
The Makers Collective is a supportive community of makers and creatives with one main aim: to empower women around the world to pursue creativity in business and in life. Through online courses in business fundamentals, graphic design and photography, along with live workshops, free online content and an encouraging online community that grows daily, The Makers Co is changing lives and the role that women play in the small business landscape.
So are you ready to start taking action with your business idea that will change your life for the better?
Applications open 11th April and close on the 12th May.
