Some of the North West’s leading companies have come together to launch the UK’s first industry-led social media apprenticeship. The programme is not only creating much-needed jobs for young people but is helping to fill an industry-wide skills gap by training young professionals in the practical application of social media.
The apprenticeship is delivered through a mixture of theoretical and work-place learning, covering all elements of social media management. Modules covered include social media management, developing content for social sharing, developing a digital strategy, keyword analysis, social media for mobile and SEO. The core programme is delivered by practising social media specialists at Tangerine PR, one of the UK’s leading PR consultancies, ‘guru’ from the wider industry as well as guest lecturers.
There are four intakes of apprentices per year, with apprentices placed full-time in local businesses, taking time out to learn theoretical and practical skills.
