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 - Social Media for Business Diploma Level 3 (Generic Pathway): This is a work based qualification 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 qualification is tailored to the individual, the time taken to complete your portfolio will depend on how quickly you collect the evidence. Normally, a Level 3 Diploma will take a minimum of 18-24 months to complete.

You will cover topics including:
- Principles of Social Media in Business
- Principles of Keywords and Optimisation
- Social Networking Management for Business
- Using Collaborative Techniques 

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.
