Do you want to work for Google, Meta or another top company and don’t fancy University? You’ve come to the right place!
What is a Digital Marketing Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a paid job where the employee learns and gains valuable experiences. Alongside on-the-job training, apprentices spend at least 20% of their working hours completing classroom-based learning with a college, university or training provider which leads to a nationally recognised qualification.
You will complete a Level 3 Digital Marketing course, which consists of a portfolio showcasing all the work and projects you work on. You will also also take exams on the fundamentals of digital marketing and coding, but don’t worry, you will be fully prepared for your exams thanks to the amazing 1:1 training of your personal coach and through group coaching sessions, bootcamps and webinars.
So, you are getting real world marketing experience at some of the best companies in the world, learning new skills and being paid to do it!
You’ll have no University debt and a great CV at the end of your apprenticeship – sounds great right!
Digital Marketing – What exactly is this?
Digital marketing encompasses all of your marketing activities that take place online. Its influence to engage customers grows every year as more people use the internet to browse, connect and buy.
According to recent studies, the number of people using the internet is 4.95 billion. That’s nearly 63 percent of the world’s population! The increase in mobile use also continues, as 5.31 billion people now use their phones to access the internet.
That’s a lot of potential customers to reach online and it’s the job of digital marketers to devise and execute digital campaigns that do just that.
This includes not only email, social media, and web-based advertising, but also text and multimedia messages as a marketing channel.
This is what your role could look like:
You could be placed in a variety of marketing roles – from Sales and Data Analysts to a Social Media and Product Marketer.
You will work closely with your guide (mentor) in your team and your line manager. You will work collaboratively on campaigns, strategic planning, content creation and execution – developing skills such as communication, presenting, project management, working with stakeholders and more.
By the end of your apprenticeship you will have all the skills required to excel in any role within the marketing industry!
Why should you do a Digital Marketing Apprenticeship?
1. No debt and no need for student loans
With the cost of university increasing each year many are looking for alternative routes to secure their dream roles. An apprenticeship is the perfect alternative. Your employer and the Government pay for your tuition expenses, so you don’t need to take out a student loan. Some apprenticeship programs even offer a relocation bonus if you have to move for your program – pretty great right!
2. On the job experience and therefore more employable
Unlike University, where you sit in a lecture hall and learn skills from someone standing at the front of a class, doing this apprenticeship you will be in the office at your place of work and you can apply what you learn from the apprenticeship straightaway in the workplace. You can collaborate with your team, network, socialise and get exposure to incredible real world marketing opportunities.
Because you’ll be learning on-the-job with your employer, you’ll gain lots of experience to enhance your CV whilst studying for your level 3 apprenticeship. This gives you an advantage over University graduates from full-time courses, who wouldn’t have had as many opportunities to use what they learnt in the workplace.
3. 1:1 Coaching and Support
You will have the amazing benefit of a 1:1 personal coach who will be with you every step of the way throughout the entire duration of your apprenticeship, from both the training provider and your employer. You’ll also get access to the apprenticeship provider’s student support services and online community network.
