General Information

What Is Involved In Studying This Course?

The apprentices’ journey begins with a period of learning, development and continuous assessment which covers the full range of knowledge, skills, behaviours and attitudes required within the Digital Marketer environment. This is managed by the employer. In most cases, there’s also support from a training provider.

In the next stage the apprentice is required to have to show evidence of the relevant digital marketer knowledge, skills and behaviours as set out in the standard and to have achieved maths and English (Level 1) and taken the test for Level 2.

Finally the apprentice moves on to the final stage of end-point assessment made up of the following assessment methods:
  • Apprenticeship Showcase
  • Professional Discussion
  • Practical Observation

What Careers Can This Lead To?

Learners who upon successful completion of the City & Guilds Level 3 Digital Marketer apprenticeship may have the opportunity to progress into job roles such as Digital Content Manager, Online/Display Advertising Manager, Social Media Manager, SEO Manager, PPC Manager and Content Manager.
