Organisations we work with
Take a look at our latest guidance for apprentices regarding COVID-19.
"An apprenticeship programme for professionals has many benefits, but the two that strike me most are: it provides the space to learn again - something all marketers should continue to do. Secondly, it gives strong theoretical underpinning to what we do on a daily basis - a reminder of the real value of disciplined marketing processes, which in turn can only add value for your employer" - Nick Wake, Apprenticeship Tutor
What is an Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship combines a real job with practical training and study to gain skills, knowledge and experience.
There are many different apprenticeships available across a wide range of industries, and for a wide variety of job roles. As a paid employee, each apprentice works alongside their studies.
Who can do an apprenticeship
Apprenticeships are not just for new starters or people who are just about to enter the workplace, they are available to all ages and existing employed members of staff.
The College is currently delivering the following marketing and PR apprenticeships:
- Marketing Assistant
- Marketing Executive
- Marketing Manager
- PR and Communications Assistant
- Junior Content Producer
- Digital Marketer
The levels of apprenticeship
Apprenticeships have equivalent educational levels. You can train through an apprenticeship at a higher level than a qualification that you already hold. Or if there is significant new learning required for your role, you can train at lower or equivalent level to your existing qualification.
|Name||Level||Equivalent education level|
|Higher||4, 5, 6, and 7||Foundation degree and above|
|Degree||6 and 7||Bachelor's or master's degree|
Can an individual apply for an apprenticeship?
No. Apprenticeships are organised by the employer, who chooses the Apprentice training company.
How long does an apprenticeship take?
A minimum 12 months — plus your end point assessment — but time is dependent on the standard and your experience.
Will an apprenticeship cost me anything?
There is no cost to the apprentice. All apprentices must receive a minimum wage of £3.90 per hour plus 20 days paid holiday a year, but you may receive more.
Where can I find apprenticeship opportunities?
You can search and apply for an apprenticeship opportunity in England.
