Successful Mums is committed to staying ahead of the curve by continuously evolving to address the needs of mums and the changing world around us. This includes adapting to the shift in work dynamics post-pandemic and finding the best ways to work collaboratively.

Since we started nearly ten years ago, we’ve taken a proactive stance in listening and adapting. Eight years ago, we integrated mental health awareness into our courses. In 2019, we expanded our content to include peri-menopause education and as the world pivoted to digital home working in 2020, we introduced essential digital skills. Monitoring emerging trends is part of who we are.

In 2022/23, we recognised that new technologies were affecting the confidence of our skilled mums, creating new obstacles to re-entering the workforce. Therefore, we incorporated artificial intelligence (AI) into our digital courses.

The feedback has been exceptionally positive, with numerous mums gaining increased confidence and a deeper understanding of AI’s role in the workplace.

Heather Driscoll, a Digital Skills graduate, shared, “The Digital and IT skills course has been life-changing. After a long break from work, my confidence has soared, and I feel ready to re-enter the workforce. The course covered the essential digital skills needed in today’s post-pandemic workplace. I also loved the AI module – it opened my eyes to a whole new field, and I’m now following several AI influencers and keen to learn more.“

Our Digital course now spans various subjects, including the Metaverse, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Near Field Communication (NFC), smart mobile and cloud technologies, and AI applications in augmented analytics, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and 3D printing.

While this might sound like sci-fi, we break it down into simple terms – using our unique resources designed for mums.

We delve into how technology can fulfill both personal and business needs. Embracing new and emerging technologies can provide businesses with a competitive advantage, fostering innovation, efficiency, and productivity. However, we don’t shy away from discussing the risks, such as cybersecurity threats, technological obsolescence, data loss, and compliance issues.

As part of the course assessment, our mums deliver presentations to consolidate their learning. They also research the impact of new technologies on a chosen sector. This helps them focus on their potential career paths, preparing them and helping them understand how technology has transformed these sectors.

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s essential to understand how technology, particularly AI, is transforming our lives and workplaces, as demand for AI talent grows. A solid grasp of basic AI concepts and other emerging technologies helps us appreciate their current and future impact.

For now, our Digital Technology Unit provides a fantastic introduction to these concepts, equipping our mums with the knowledge and confidence to navigate the current digital landscape. But, with AI being the fastest-evolving field in technology, I do not doubt that our courses will continue to adapt to incorporate new developments, respond to industry needs and equip our mums with the skills necessary to thrive in the world of AI and beyond.
