SOCIAL MEDIA STUDENTS

social media experts
In 2013, co-founders Jonathon and Daniele, working in the consulting and advertising media industries, realised employers were struggling to find qualified social media resources.
As advertising budgets quickly transitioned away from traditional broadcast media (such as TV, print and radio) to social media networks, businesses required high-quality staff to allocate social media spend effectively, generate a high return on investment and help manage social communities. Despite a large number of social media ‘soft skill’ courses existing, employers found it very difficult to assess the quality of the training and whether the prospective employee was capable of developing and implementing an effective social media strategy.
That is how the concept for Social Media College came to fruition.
Their vision was to build a world-leading social media marketing institution that developed courses in partnership with leading global social media experts.
After many days and nights working tirelessly together, Daniele and Jon successfully launched Social Media College and an accredited 10904NAT Diploma of Social Media Marketing - a government recognised course with the Australia Skills Quality Authority (ASQA).
Now 5 years on and over 10,000 students educated, the rest, as they say, is history.
Social Media College is now regarded as the market leader in social media marketing education, continuing to deliver excellent outcomes for its students and the organisations they work for.
