An employer must be prepared to provide the learner with the opportunity to carry out work and be part of projects which will enable the learner to produce substantial evidence towards their qualification.
In order to ensure the successful progression of the learner we request that employers participate in joint reviews of the learner’s progress at regular intervals throughout the apprenticeship. This ensures continued and positive progress through the apprenticeship. It will also provide the opportunity to discuss and agree how any issues are to be resolved and how additional stretching and challenging activities can be built in.

Must have a minimum of 12 months’ experience with the role or similar. Maths and English qualifications must be held; minimum accepted levels include: Grade D GCSE or Level 1 Functional Skills.
Module 1: Principles of Coding
Module 2: Marketing Principles
Module 3: Digital Marketing Business Principle Vendor Qualifications
Within this apprenticeship, learners must achieve a minimum of one internationally recognised vendor or professional qualification. The vendor qualifications directly cross reference against the Ofqual-regulated knowledge modules and as such, the completion of a vendor qualification then exempts the learner from the corresponding knowledge module.
Additional vendor qualifications may be available.
The duration of this apprenticeship is 16 months. Please note the last 3 months of the apprenticeship are allocated for the end point assessment.
How Do We Support
During the duration of the programme, the learner will have a dedicated assessor who will visit them at the workplace a minimum of once per month in order to support their learning, development of competency and generation of evidence. This will also be supported between visits by off-site information, advice, guidance, academic progress and technical competence support.
The assessor will work with the learner and the employer in order to ensure that all learning needs are being met for both parties, in order to ensure successful progression
against all elements of the apprenticeship during the period of the programme. The knowledge modules and vendor qualifications will require formal teaching sessions, which may take place within an appropriate area within the workplace or off-site, in order to ensure the learner gets the maximum benefit of the learning to successfully pass all associated exams.
Independent End Point Assessment
In order to pass the apprenticeship, the learner needs to successfully pass the End Point Assessment. This assessment is made up of a number of stages:
- A portfolio – this is a collection of evidence from real work projects
- A project – undertaken within a controlled environment (away from the day to day workplace) over the period of one-week
- An employer reference – this is usually carried out via a face to face or skype call with an assessor from the end point assessment body
- A learner interview – this is carried out via a face to face or skype call with an assessor from the end point assessment body, where questioning will be carried out around the contents of the portfolio and the project
The assessor from the end point assessment body will then decide whether to award successful apprentices with a pass, a merit or a distinction.
This apprenticeship is recognised for entry on to the Register of IT Technicians and those completing their apprenticeships are eligible to apply for registration. Completion of the apprenticeship would also allow access to join as an Affiliate (Professional) member of the CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing) and/or Associate membership of BCS.
