College launches new apprenticeships in IT and Marketing

Walsall College are looking to offer new apprenticeships for budding and existing Digital Marketers, Data Analysts and Infrastructure Technicians.

The new Level 3 programmes have been introduced to expand the College’s apprenticeship offer to school leavers and adults looking for a career change.

The Digital Marketing apprenticeship has been designed to give apprentices with a passion for online creativity the opportunity to utilise and build upon their skills in an organisational setting.

Tailored to meet the employer’s business needs, the apprenticeship will equip the learner with the technical skills and business acumen to drive customer acquisition, engagement and retention.

The College’s Data Analyst apprenticeship is also part of a nation-wide roll-out of new programmes. It aims to help apprentices effectively collect, organise and study data to provide business insight.

Through the support of an assessor, apprentices will develop the skills to work across a variety of projects, providing data solutions to a range of stakeholders and customer issues.

The Infrastructure Technician apprenticeship is launched in response to the growing need for IT support in organisations.

Apprentices will develop the skills to support internal and external customers, by using tools to problem solve and trouble shoot non routine problems. This will help customers to be more productive when using technology to do their own jobs.

James Norris, Assistant Principal for Commercial Development at Walsall College, said: “Apprenticeships offer employers the opportunity to train new or existing members of staff to understand and support the unique requirements of their business.

Apprenticeship programmes are tailored to specific job roles, meaning they are ideal for meeting the needs of your skills shortage. Learning can often be undertaken in your workplace, resulting in minimal disruption and maximum impact.

These programmes are also a great way of attracting new talent to your organisation, whilst allowing the opportunity to mould them to your organisation’s way of working at the same time.

72% of businesses who have employed apprentices report improved productivity, whilst 80% have reported a significant increase in employee retention. 57% of companies also report a high proportion of their apprentices progressing into management roles within the organisation.”
