The first Grow Academy Boot Camp for 2012 has arrived, with new recruits coming on board for a five day journey whereby they are empowered with digital tools and skills for school leavers and the digitally passionate unemployed to get back into the job market.
The morning started with the registration and thereafter the new recruits were introduced to Drill Sergeant Jannie Smith, who laid out the rules and regulations; this was followed by a few drills and team tasks.
After being informed about the programme for the week, the recruits had great expectations with one of them stating “I see it as a new experience and challenge”. The five day Boot Camp is managed by the six founding partners GivenGain, Woothemes, RLabs, Webgrowth, GetSmarter and Silulo. The adventure for the week involves the following:
- Day 1 – Introduction
- Day 2 – Social Media (RLabs)
- Day3 – Web Design (Woothemes)
- Day 4 – SEO (WebGrowth)
- Day 5 – Crowd Sourcing (GivenGain)
