Level Up is our social initiative dedicated to providing educational opportunities and support to individuals living in or seeking refuge from conflict-affected regions. The programme, which is now entering its 5th year, focuses on empowering people in precarious situations to acquire new skills and gain access to new career opportunities in order to transform their lives. The programme has already supported 80 aspiring professionals and has enabled many of them to get hired by renowned companies such as HubSpot, Accenture, Ericsson, and more.
This year, Level Up is kicking off with Professional Digital Marketing Scholarships, provided by Digital Marketing Institute (DMI). These digital marketing scholarships will help refugees and asylum seekers in Ireland and across the world.
DMI offers a range of digital marketing certifications that kickstart, enhance, and advance the careers of professionals across the world. With 220,000+ members and 25,000+ certified professionals, DMI sets the standard for the digital marketing industry. DMI Pro is a comprehensive digital marketing course that offers practical knowledge and relevant skills; it gives marketers the key disciplines they need to succeed in the modern workplace.
Graduates will be supported by the Digital Marketing Institute’s membership community, and will have access to networking opportunities. Additionally, Zartis team members will help the Level Up alumni transition and prepare for the job market, ensuring they are well-equipped for employment opportunities.
One of the graduates, who has subsequently started a career in Ireland at Starwood Hotels says, “Even mentioning such a course in my resume was great. This scholarship helped me a lot in attending several job interviews, and in the end, I succeeded.”
