German adventure gives insight into digital marketing business

If you are aged 16 to 18 and considering a career working in digital marketing, a new course due to be launched by St Helens Chamber could help you to achieve your career goals.

Starting in September the exciting new course will be delivered at the chamber’s new digital training centre in St Helens town centre.

Delivered over seven months the course combines a range of highly sought after qualifications with relevant work experience. By the end of the course you will be ready to move into an exciting fast-moving industry with a guaranteed interview for an advanced apprenticeship in digital marketing.

The course includes qualifications in marketing and digital promotion for business, covering subjects such as search engine optimisation and using social media for business. Students also gain relevant work experience, can take driving lessons and even go on an all-expenses paid study trip to Stuttgart in Germany.

The study trip is packed full of company visits and guided tours designed to provide students with an insight into multinational commercial operations and Stuttgart’s culture, before they move on to advanced apprenticeships with local companies.

Other highlights of the trip include guided tours of Porsche and the Mercedes Benz Museum, a tour of Schmalz and Schon, one of the biggest logistics companies in the world. Laura Brogden, young people’s development manager at the chamber, said: “So far over 75 students have benefited from our study programme courses, gaining lots of valuable skills and experiences and moving onto rewarding careers.

“This year we are excited to be launching a new course in digital marketing, and delivering it from our brand new digital hub.”
