The Ignition program is a new 6 week online program offered by The Training Collective. It is also offered as an in person ‘bootcamp’ in some locations during school holidays. The course goes above and beyond to teach people what they really need to know to be a valuable work experience student or intern, gain employment or simply get started in an increasingly digital world. As the name suggests, this course helps you get the motor running ready to take off on your digital journey. Ignition is a great course to invest in if you are a parent wanting to keep up with your kids, have a teenager that you want to increase their chances of employment, and/or starting their own business, or a business person who wants to improve their digital skills and confidence, and be much better placed to continue with other learning paths with The Creative Collective.
