Course Information for Students

The primary role of a digital marketer is to define, design, build and implement digital campaigns across a variety of online and social media platforms to drive customer acquisition, customer engagement and customer retention.

A digital marketer will typically be working as part of a team, in which they will have responsibility for some of the straightforward elements of the overall marketing plan or campaign. The marketer will work to marketing briefs and instructions. They will normally report to a digital marketing manager, a marketing manager or an IT Manager.

GCSE grades 9-4 in English and Maths or the equivalent are desirable.  Apprentices without English or Maths at Level 2 must achieve these prior to taking the End Point Assessment.

In addition to having good literacy and numeracy skills, you will need to be well motivated and self disciplined. Employers may well require a proven passion for digital and social media.

You must be willing to use and maintain an e-portfolio of evidence.

You will be required to attend an interview before enrolling on this course.

·       the principles of coding

·       basic marketing principles

Technical knowledge and understanding is assessed during the programme through a combination of knowledge modules and specified vendor and professional qualifications. These must be passed before the End Point Assessment can take place.

The final End Point Assessment is based on:

·         a portfolio, produced towards the end of the apprenticeship – containing evidence from real work projects completed during the apprenticeship – which is assessed as part of the End Point Assessment

·         a project – giving the apprentice the opportunity to undertake a business-related project over a one-week period away from the day-to-day workplace

·         an employer reference

·         a structured interview with an assessor – exploring what has been produced in the portfolio and during the project as well as how it has been produced

In addition to having good literacy and numeracy skills, apprentices will need to be well motivated and self disciplined. Employers may well require a proven passion for digital and social media.

As an employer working with Derby College Group, you will be expected to offer support and guidance to ensure that your apprentice can achieve the qualification. This includes providing opportunities for on-the-job training and secondment where appropriate.  You are expected to be actively involved in all apprentice reviews and to set work objectives for the apprentice.

Your apprentice will be required to complete off-the-job training for a minimum of 20% of their working week.  If they need to complete Functional Skills, they may be required to attend block release at College.

All apprentices are expected to be actively engaged in their learning programme at all times. They will be required to build and maintain a portfolio of work-based evidence.  They must attend all workplace assessment visits on time and submit any work requested on time and to an appropriate standard.

If it is deemed necessary for the apprentice to attend College sessions, they must do so as instructed by the workplace assessor or other member of College staff.

Technical knowledge and understanding is assessed during the programme through a combination of knowledge modules and specified vendor and professional qualifications. These must be passed before the End Point Assessment can take place.

·       a structured interview with an assessor 

Apprentices may have to attend College one day a week for the duration of the apprenticeship.  Also, if Functional Skills are required, block release will be mandatory so that your apprentice can achieve this aspect of their programme.
