The Content Creator Apprenticeship (Level 3) is an ideal career progression route into the Digital Marketing and Content Creation industry, or for those already working within the sector. It will take approximately 15 – 21 months to complete, and is equivalent to two A-levels. Typical job roles associated with the programme include Content Assistant, Content Creator, Content Producer and many more.

There are no standardised eligibility criteria for this qualification. This means the individual employer will decide if a candidate is suitable.

Off-the-Job Training

For 20% of your apprenticeship, you must have time away from your regular duties. This is to engage in training related to your post and programme. Known as ‘Off-the-Job Training’, this should take place at a time convenient for both you and your employer.

The qualification is delivered through a blended learning approach. You will be required to make time to see your tutor via remote or face-to-face sessions.

The sessions will take place roughly once per month, usually lasting around 2 hours. The duration of these can be extended for any additional learning or support you require. Your tutor will also provide support and guidance in between each learning session.

You should also expect to carry out self-study and learning as part of the Off-the-Job Training using your iLearner portfolio.

Functional Skills

If you do not have grades A-C/9-4 in GCSE maths and English or equivalent, you will complete Functional Skills alongside the apprenticeship. It is nationally recognised and is completed as part of the apprenticeship.

  • As a Level 3 qualification, you’ll complete Level 2 Functional Skills maths and English.
  • The learning will be delivered by one of our dedicated tutors via remote or face-to-face sessions. The only exceptions are the speaking and listening assessments. These may be delivered in a classroom.
  • These sessions will take place once a month, for roughly 2 hours depending on your learning needs.
  • With their expert help, you’ll have all the support you need to achieve your goals.

The End-Point Assessment

As part of your Content Creator Apprenticeship, an End-Point Assessment (EPA) will be completed to demonstrate your development and growth. You can achieve either a Pass or Distinction based on your final grade.

Project/Campaign Report and Presentation

During the final 6 months of your apprenticeship, you will work towards completing a Work-Based Project or Campaign of your choosing. This Project must be one you have personally contributed to and developed content for. For the End-Point Assessment, you will complete both an Evaluation Report of the success of the Project and a Presentation with Questions and Answers. You will showcase the knowledge, skills, and behaviours you have learnt throughout your apprenticeship.

Professional Discussion

Following on from the Project Report and Presentation, you will conduct a Professional Discussion with a third-party independent assessor to establish further understanding of your knowledge and skills. This may cover a number of scenarios you may have encountered in your job role, and questions relating to the development of skills.
