Retro Digital Foundation

Helping Young Parents Acheive Their Full Potential


Being a young parent is hard, and sometimes we just need someone to believe in us to help us acheive our full potential. 


From one teen mum to another,
you’ve got this

I’m Sarah and I’m the managing director of Retro Digital, and I’m mum to two amazing kids. I was 18 when I found out I was pregnant with Sofie.  

There is so much stigma associated with being a young parent, and that’s something I want to change. No-one believed me that a teen mum could ever acheive anything. I lost count of the number of times I was told things like”no one is going to hire you with a kid…you won’t get anywhere without a degree…you’ve ruined your life…”

And this is where society has got things wrong. Young parents have so much potential, though when you’re so busy changing nappies, a career is probably the last thing you’re thinking about. You also probably want to study, but how can you when you can’t get babysitting, and evening courses are so expensive?

It’s time us young parents showed the world just what we’re capable of, and the Retro Digital Foundation is going to be there to help you.

What does the Retro Digital Foundation do?

Having been a young parent myself, I know just how hard it is to find somewhere to study. It’s near impossible to find somwhere with child-friendly hours, and if you do, it’s too expensive. That’s why we’re offering the chance for young parents to get free places on our digital marketing diploma courses. They’re flexible, give you a qualification, and help get you back to work. And we’re also here to help. If you’re looking to get away from all that negativity and want someone to listen and help you make your dreams happen, we’re here for you.


Are you looking to gain an extra qualification that you can fit around the kids? No matter what you’re great at, there’s going to be an element of digital marketing you’ll love. If you want to get a qualification under your belt and land that dream job, our free digital marketing diploma courses might be just what you’re looking for.


Do you have a great idea? Do want to get into business but you’re not where to start? Or do you just want a bit of advice on how to polish up your CV or ace an interview? Or are you just not sure which path to take? We’re here to help. We believe in you and want to help you acheive your full potential, no matter what your goals are.

Who’s eligable?

If you’re under 23 and a young parent or young parent to-be, we’re here to support you. If you’d like to apply for a place on one of our courses or you’d just like to chat things over, get in touch.
