Why Trainees Have Studied with Supermums
I wanted to supercharge my Salesforce learning but i needed a training course that would offer the guidance and accountability that I needed. I saw Heather at Dreamforce and was so impressed with her passion and vision but more importantly, I was impressed by the structure of the Supermums programme.
I enrolled on the Supermums Marketing Cloud course because I wanted to update my marketing technology skills and gain some hands on experience in Salesforce Marketing Cloud. I have learnt so much and the course has increased my knowledge and confidence about Salesforce and marketing automation technology!
"After completing my Admin Cert I really wanted the skills to design new systems and respond to different stakeholder needs throughout the CRM implementation process. I've really enjoyed the Consultancy Skills course as it has given me the confidence to deliver with a clear implementation process for projects, with tools and techniques. It's a great flexible course to fit around my schedule with also the option to stay in touch via chatter and the weekly group coaching sessions."
Supermums reminded me that I'm still me. I still have all of those strengths and can apply them in any role in Salesforce. I really felt that having someone be your champion and encourage you to see the strengths that you bring to the table, that and the Supermums community....it's life changing!

What is a Business Analyst and why are the skills important?
An IS (Information Systems) Business Analyst is an advisory role that provides a critical layer of challenge and scrutiny for organisations who wish to deliver IS change successfully.
Leading industry research highlights that the main reasons why CRM projects fail is not related to technical knowledge, but because of:
- poor business analysis
- inefficient project management
- low executive sponsorship and ineffective change management.
>If you are managing a Salesforce implementation as a solo admin or consultant, we advocate the necessity to be equipped with the relevant skills to do a brilliant job. You might even be doing the role of a Business Analyst already but don’t know it or have that job title!
What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are a popular study option and a great way to gain hands on experience whist studying towards and industry recognised qualification, all while still earning a salary as many are done through a current employer. Traditionally apprenticeships were known as an entry training route for young people, but now Apprenticeships are just regarded as a formal way of providing on-the-job training whilst people are working in their existing job roles.
