Formerly known as the Gig Economy Series, the Gig Academy has been developed to help students discover self-employment as an alternative form of employment. It is a series of workshops by industry experts, covering topics in Freelancing, E-commerce, Digital Marketing, Micro Influencing and more. With content sharing from brands including Google, Tiktok and Creatives at Work, the hands-on programme aims to help better prepare students for the future of work.
The programme also features Network-Gig, a networking platform designed to inspire students as they gain insights into the world of freelancing and have the opportunity to connect and collaborate with like-minded freelancers in various field.
Upon completion of the programme, students can join the Gig Community, where opportunities for gig work are shared, and students are encouraged to collaborate with peers to work on projects from actual clients, allowing them to further develop their portfolios.
