We’re obviously a tad biased but we think that training and development are vital for search marketers. The world of SEO is always changing so it’s important to stay up to date on new technology and trends plus build up your knowledge of adjacent topics like UX and psychology.
Our training workshops cover a wide range of topics suitable for beginners through to experts. They’re run by specialists who really know what they’re talking about and get great feedback.
We know that certain groups of people are under-represented in the world of SEO so we’re excited to offer scholarship places at our training workshops.
These places are free of charge and aim to give the opportunity to learn more about SEO to people from under-represented groups in our industry who wouldn’t be able to access it otherwise. We hope it will help open up the industry and routes to the top.
For example: people who are returning to work after a break (including maternity/parental/adoption leave), LGBTQ+ people, women, non-binary people, disabled people, people of colour, people who are unemployed or students. These categories aren’t exhaustive but hopefully give you an idea of who we’re trying to assist.
We’ve been working on making our events more accessible and inclusive so we also have a super cheap on-site creche if you need childcare and we are happy to chat about other ways we can accommodate your accessibility requirements.
You just have to fill in our short application form to tell us a little about yourself and which workshop you’d like to attend.
Applications for September 2023's scholarships close on 24 July.
After applications close we review all applicants and contact everyone in the following week to let them know if they’ve been allocated a scholarship place.
We won’t share details of who has been allocated a scholarship place (though recipients are obviously welcome to do this) and receipients will get exactly the same (marvellous) experience on the day as everyone else with a training ticket plus entrance to the conference on Thursday & Friday.
Buy a ticket for a workshop or conference, email it to [email protected] and we’ll assign it to someone via our scholarship process.
Please spread the word about this opportunity to anyone who might benefit from it.
