Apprenticeships are a popular choice for people looking for on-the-job training and the opportunity to gain recognised experience whilst earning a wage. Your training will take place at Bournemouth and Poole College in conjunction with your employer and they will be heavily involved in your progress and development.

Apprenticeships are a unique way of learning. Offering on-the-job training allowing you to earn a wage while you work towards your nationally recognised qualification.
You will gain workplace experience, supported by attending college just one day a week.

A Multi-Channel Marketer Apprenticeship will give you valuable experience within the marketing industry. You will be responsible for coordinating and delivering specific marketing activities such as marketing content creation.
You will also be involved in analysing background market and customer research, monitoring campaign analytic and collecting data, using relevant marketing software/systems and overseeing the delivery of work by external and internal marketing suppliers.

You will come to college one day a week where you will explore and research the latest developments in IT software, marketing theory and design. Typically, apprentices will be part of a team, in which you will have responsibility for some of the straightforward elements of an overall marketing plan or campaign.Alongside on-the-job training, apprentices spend a minimum of 6 hours of their working week completing off-the-job training.
The apprentice’s days in college are important in supporting their understanding of what they are learning in the workplace.

We have been awarded the “Chartered Institue of Marketing” centre commendation for our pass rate.

How long will it take?

  • 23 months (including End Point Assessment of 5 months).
