This will be taught via classroom style delivery, however it is expected that the individual will complete all of the above whilst in the workplace so that they have real work practical examples of what has been taught. This will allow the individual to gain confidence in their approach to problem solving and develop their skills in working as part of a wider team. Students will also create their own projects which will be used towards their final assessments at the end of the qualification.
Students will also need to produce 5 'real work' projects as part of their showcase portfolio which will be submitted at the end of the qualification practical period prior to the end point assessment.
How is the apprenticeship delivered?
The qualification will be delivered through a mix of blended learning, classroom delivery, 1:1 coaching support, workshops, and enrichment sessions with speakers who are industry professionals.
The individual will be required to attend college once a week for the full day. There will be two sessions; a morning session centred on theory and an afternoon workshop focussed on portfolio building, practical application, and visits from industry speakers.
When the individual is in the workplace, they will be expected to carry out digital marketing activities in line with what has been delivered in college.
The lecturer/assessor will be visiting the individual to carry out reviews and observations in the work place, so that they can build up a working picture of the daily tasks the individual needs to complete in-line with the needs of the business.
The typical duration of the apprenticeship is 18 months, with a 15 month practical period and 3 month end point assessment.
