Develop practical skills and knowledge in digital and social media marketing, underpinned by business and marketing principles. Ideal for apprentices working in small, medium, or large organisations within proximity of our ARU Peterborough campus, our course will equip you to respond to ever-changing digital challenges and innovations, appraise strategic marketing implications and outcomes, and seize opportunities in both local and globally competitive markets.
You’ll put your skills and knowledge into practice throughout the course, learning on campus for one day each week with apprentices from a variety of organisations to enrich your development, with live and practical applications that add value to your organisation’s marketing activities as you progress.
An apprenticeship is a job with training, combining practical experience with academic learning.
At least 20% of your contracted working hours will be classed as 'off-the-job'. This time will be dedicated to developing the knowledge and skills needed to meet the requirements of the apprenticeship, and therefore is not part of your usual work duties.
The off-the-job learning will be delivered through online University-led learning sessions and activities, one-day workshops, and practical learning experiences in your usual work setting.
The off-the-job learning for our Digital Marketer Degree Apprenticeship is delivered on our ARU Peterborough campus. You will be on campus for one day every week.
You will be assessed at the end of each module you undertake (on-programme assessments) which will contribute towards the final award of your qualification.
You will also undertake an End Point Assessment (EPA) to complete your apprenticeship.
The EPA for this apprenticeship is integrated into the final on-programme assessments. Therefore, on successful completion of your degree, you will also complete the apprenticeship.
The degree is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) which offers additional membership benefits beyond graduation.
