A 21-year-old from the North East has become the first person to enrol on a 12 to 18-month apprenticeship in social media and digital marketing.
Kate Veitch, 21, from Gateshead, will cover search engine optimisation and website design, as well as techniques for marketing a business through social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
“I’m really interested in the marketing side of running a business so this course is perfect for me,” said Kate.
The apprenticeship, run by Access Training, will lead to a level three diploma in social media for business.
Managing director of Access Training Malcolm Armstrong said: “There is a requirement for businesses to recruit employees that are keen to work in this area and to develop these skills.”
