Today was the first day of my Level 4 Digital Marketing Diploma with Swansea ITEC. I am currently employed in this industry, specialising in the management of Social Media for businesses in South Wales. Previous to this, I was working as a Creative Graphic Designer for notonthehighstreet.com, designing prints and imagery for various products online. Before that, I worked for Admiral PLC as a Sales and Customer Service Adviser, gaining experience in a global company. I am hoping that this current level of study will further my existing knowledge on the subject of online Digital Marketing and enable me to progress in my career.
I have participated in the induction of this course throughout the day, learning more about the various areas and modules of work that I will be undertaking throughout the Diploma. I now understand the evidence required of me, and the weight of some units in comparison with others. I have also been shown a list of optional units which will assist my 6 mandatory units – all of which complete my Diploma. I am looking forward to choosing the areas I am interested in and would like to study.
