Apprenticeship in Social Digital Level 2 with The Digital Youth Academy at Westminster Kingsway College

Course description

The Social Digital Apprenticeship links the natural skills of the 'born digital' generation with those of businesses who want to improve your online presence to grow and expand.  Businesses that actively use social and digital media within their sales mix are proven to grow faster than those that don’t. A Social Digital Apprentice will work with their employer to understand the brand and develop their digital marketing strategy. You will learn employability skills and further develop your digital media skills for use in a business context.
 
This is a high quality option for a school-leaver to go to work, learn new skills and gain a recognised qualification and to earn a wage. The value of an Apprenticeship is that it has been put together to develop you both in your chosen field and as an individual.
