This course is aimed at those already employed and looking to obtain a formal qualification.

The Diploma will be run entirely online, with no attendance at College required, and is, therefore, suitable for any student who is employed, anywhere in Scotland.

The Diploma in Digital Marketing at SCQF level 6 provides learners with a qualification that demonstrates underpinning knowledge, and evidence of competence in digital marketing.

Learners can progress to a range of courses at a higher level, including HNC/HND Marketing, HNC/HND Advertising and PR, or degree programmes in Marketing.

This qualification is competence-based and is offered within a workplace environment. It can be assessed within a workplace environment or, where simulation is used, within a realistic working environment.

The Diploma in Digital Marketing is suitable for:

  • Individuals who are currently in employment and who wish to obtain a formal qualification
  • Employers who wish their employees to obtain short, continuing professional development courses
