What is the Skills Bootcamp in Digital Marketing?

The Skills Bootcamp in Digital Marketing will equip you with the practical and technical knowledge of digital marketing, to include how to define, design, build and implement digital marketing campaigns across a variety of online and social media platforms, the acquisition, engagement and retention of customers, coding basics, and website analytics, to progress them into sustainable employment with employers.

We have worked closely with employers to create this highly interactive, practical and creative Skills Bootcamp which develops knowledge and skills needed within the digital sector. As part of this co-design employers are providing marketing and content production briefs to deliver real life industry campaign experience for the participants.
