Marketing Assistant Apprenticeship – Reference Number: ST0807
Marketing is a vital aspect to all businesses, providing insights and awareness into customer needs in order to develop and deliver new products and services. Marketing is the process of effectively researching, developing, promoting and distributing products or services through a range of channels. Marketing also involves the implementation of marketing strategy and plans to make this delivery possible.
Who is it for?
The Level 3 marketing assistant apprenticeship is suitable for individuals who are working in their first marketing role and is typically the entry route for many marketing professionals who progress their career into more senior positions. Individuals may typically support the work of marketing managers and executives, assisting with developing marketing campaigns, sales strategies, and supporting various projects, which can involve interaction and collaboration with various departments within the organisation. This role requires communication and teamwork skills as well as creativity and project management skills, all of which are developed within the apprenticeship.
How will the training be delivered and what can you expect?
For larger cohorts training can be delivered in-house, at a convenient time and place to the employer. For smaller cohorts, training will be delivered at one of 19 study centres throughout the UK. These study centres deliver classes at flexible times outside of work hours therefore not impacting on the day to day business. All apprentices will have access to a virtual learning environment www.oxcomlearning.com for extra reading, study and communication.
The apprenticeship will take approximately 18 months to complete, during which time the apprentice will gather and produce evidence that the apprenticeship outcomes have been met. Throughout this time, the apprentice will have regular 1-1 meetings (every 6-8 weeks) with their personal mentor/assessor to support their studies and check progress.
Unlike some other apprenticeships, the Marketing Assistant has no embedded personal qualification. However, as Oxford College of Marketing is a CIM accredited provider, to maximise the value gained from this apprenticeship, we have mapped the knowledge content to the CIM Level 3 Foundation Certificate in Professional Marketing. This allows the apprentice to achieve a dual certification – both the CIM qualification and the Marketing Assistant Apprenticeship.
Please note, extra fees for assignment support, CIM membership and assessment fees, and books will apply.
