Marketing Apprenticeship Level 3 at Warwickshire College Group

Course description

Apprenticeships are a vocational training programme leading to a series of qualifications, offering the opportunity to earn while you learn using real working life experience. To become an apprentice, you must be employed in a suitable position

Course content

Work Based Learning Element - Marketing NVQ Level 3: NVQs are work based qualifications that you will complete in your work place. An assessor will be assigned to help you select the modules which best fit with your work and will visit you regularly to help you compile a portfolio of evidence to show your competence. As the NVQ is tailored to the individual, the time taken to complete your portfolio will depend on how quickly you collect the evidence. Normally, an NVQ Level 3 will take a minimum of 12-18 months to complete.

College Element - Technical Certificate Level 3 & Functional Skills Level 2:

You will cover topics including:

  • Analysing Competitor activity
  • Developing a marketing plan
  • Team Work

A specific indivdualised plan will be developed in order for you to gain the knowledge required to complete these qualifications.

Entry requirements

Full time employment in a suitable position.

Employers who recruit via the college are usually looking for candidates with good GCSE grades. However, attitude, flexibility and a willingness to learn and progress through the apprenticeship programme are as important as qualifications.

Apprenticeships are currently not available to those who have a degree, HNC, HND or equivalent level 4 qualification.

If you are at all unsure of your eligibility for this programme then please contact us for advice.


Assessment is a combination of portfolio evidence and online and written testing, supported by your assessor, lecturers and employer.

Future opportunities

If you are already employed, you can join the apprenticeship programme with the support of your employer and base it around your current job. This could be an opportunity to show your employer you are ready for the next step in your professional development and want to enhance your role and promotion prospects.

If you are looking for a suitable position to undertake this programme, we work closely with many employers and will help you to search for a vacancy. If you are looking for work independently, ask prospective employers, careers advisors or recruitment services about apprenticeships.
