Can Digital Marketing bring passion into your business?

I had the pleasure in reading a blog on apprentices bring passion into the work place by Anne Milton the Rt Hon MP and the Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills for the UK.

It got to make me think when I have taken marketing or digital marketing apprentices into my businesses before did they bring passion?  I have had the pleasure in managing a few apprentices over the years.  The one thing that they all came with was that gleam in their eyes and a real desire to drive themselves forward.  Every one that I have had the pleasure to manage have all gone on to bigger and better things.  The main thing that they brought was the passion as at the age we took them on thats all they could offer rough diamonds that if they are gleamed and shined in the right way will become the perfect gems that really drive businesses.

Going to college or university is not for everyone and so giving young people (and old) the ability to drive themselves through learning whilst they work is really important.

This week is national apprenticeship week and I have seen lots of activity promoting apprenticeships.  If I could give any employer the one thing that they do bring from the very start , if assessed at the application stage, is passion.

Little by little, businesses slide away from this rather archaic format of telling employees that 'Layla? She's electric,' […]

Getting Career Ready

Digital Marketing Apprenticeships Our research of our digital marketing apprenticeships in Manchester 6 months ago identified that employers and apprentices felt that they were not getting career ready when they graduated from their apprenticeship.  Although every apprenticeship has been developed by employers it is hard to categorise a broad subject or area like digital marketing.

Safeguarding in Apprenticeships - Are you doing enough?

Last week I attended the NSPCC Designated Safeguarding Officer 2-day course held at their Education and Training Centre in Leicester. Having worked in a few very successful (and a couple 'not so') training providers, and having completed copious online Safeguarding courses in my time, I figured that we had quite a robust policy and process in […]
