Marketing and Data Apprenticeships - A Great way to Build Your Talent Pool

Marketing apprenticeships are a great way to grow your talent pool, but where do you start to get talented apprentices into your marketing and data teams?

Building on our report, Apprenticeships: The Hidden Potential and partnership with JGA Apprenticeships, we held a webinar chaired by DMA Talent's General Manager Kate Burnett to shed some light on that very question.

Joining Kate was apprenticeship training provider JGA’s Managing Director, Richard Goodwin, along with apprentices Nikki Lewis, Marketing Manager, Conservatory Outlet and Rachel Davies, Communications Supervisor, Totally Wicked.

We have broken the webinar down into short bitesized clips so you can get to the answers about apprenticeships you want, including:

  • The different types of apprenticeships
  • The Government incentive to take an apprentice on board by 31 January 2022 and receive £3,000
  • How to get started recruiting apprentices using your Digital Apprenticeship Service account and spending your levy
  • What counts for 20% off-the-job training
  • How to manage apprentices working from home
