Woz U Join Forces with CredEd to Provide Teachers with Necessary Education on Coding

Woz U | August 21, 2020

Woz U will be partnering with the global clearinghouse for teaching credentials, CredEd, to provide teachers with necessary education on coding. This partnership comes as the pandemic has highlighted the need for our education system to evolve, especially when it comes to technology. A recent survey shows that teachers have a strong desire for professional learning that builds comfort with technology. "With the move to online learning, people have been critical of the education system, and how schools, in some cases, have been slow to adapt," said Jacob Mayhew, CEO of Woz U. "But the reality is, teachers have not been exposed to what they're expected to teach. Through this partnership with CredEd, we aim to change that." CredEd is an online platform for teachers to access professional development courses at a reasonable cost. CredEd partners with curriculum providers and other vendors to offer professional development and continuing education units (CEU) that are pathways to certifications and renewals, and portable credits that can be applied to other programs. The courses are approved by accreditors like the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA).

Semrush Kickstarts U.S. College Students’ Careers with Semrush for Education

Semrush | February 24, 2022

Semrush, a leading online visibility management SaaS platform, today announces the launch of Semrush for Education. The program is Semrush’s latest initiative to equip tomorrow’s digital marketers with access to its platform as well as a dedicated curriculum designed to jumpstart their careers. The program was designed to connect what’s taught in the classroom with practical, in-the-field knowledge of how top performing digital marketers work today. Launching initially in the U.S., the program gives college students an opportunity to gain practical and tangible experience using the tools and technology relied on by many of today’s leading brands. Students will get hands-on experience identifying keywords, mastering technical website audits, optimizing for local SEO, and crafting engaging content among many other things. “At Semrush our goal is to inspire the current and future generations of digital marketers. We believe that with the right access to education as well as the right tools, anyone can become a digital marketing pro. Semrush for Education aims to equip students with practical experience and give them an advantage as they pursue their dreams.” Andrew Warden, Chief Marketing Officer, Semrush The demand for digital marketing skills and positions is on the rise. In fact, Semrush data from August 2021-January 2022 revealed a 50% spike (from 5,400 to 8,100) in Google searches in the U.S. for “marketing internships.” By collaborating with professors across different communities, Semrush is committed to providing students access to the resources and experience needed to stand out during the job search process to go from aspiring post-graduate to successful marketing professional. “There’s a big gap in digital marketing education today. Students need experience and employers want students who can hit the ground running. One problem I’ve noticed is the lack of access to premier digital marketing tools. They are expensive and few offer cost-efficient solutions for students,” said Luke Alley, Professor of Marketing, Brigham Young University. “Semrush is changing that dynamic. They’ve offered free access to the platform for a full semester, educational materials, special lectures, and practical, ‘in-the-field’ digital marketing experience.” “Education is a core value for our company. We believe education is vital for people at all levels of their careers. It’s the key to building the future of marketing innovation and we are proud to launch this initiative today,” added Warden.
