Help someone on the path to an exciting career

The Virtual College Apprenticeship is a formal education programme in which the apprentice will learn in part through online delivery of content and instruction. Face-to-face classroom methods are combined with Online Live, our virtual learning environment. Customisation of instruction and assessment is a major benefit of this approach, ensuring apprentices receive ongoing support and access to the course resources and learning materials.

Bring digital benefits to your business

Apprenticeships are a key component of the digital marketing professions drive to attract new talent, providing an accessible entry point and attracting those who might not have considered a career in digital marketing in the past. They also set individuals on the professional qualifications pathway – providing a sound base for a successful career. They are also vital in allowing employers like you to train new or existing staff in an affordable way.
