About the Skills Bootcamp

This is a fully funded, Level 3 Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) accredited course. By signing up you’ll receive a one-year CIM membership and will complete an assignment which will give you 12 credit points towards a full CIM qualification.

The course will be delivered online over a 12-week period and will involve attending seven, 3-hour online sessions and undertaking guided learning activities in your own time.

It’s important that you’re able to attend all of the online sessions as tasks will be set after each one for you to complete. These tasks are aimed at helping you to write your assignment as you go through the course so that you’ll have an almost completed version by the final session.

As part of the assignment, you'll also build the framework and develop the initial content for a digital marketing plan which you can then implement within any organisation that you work for.

Once you’ve enrolled for the course, all the content including factsheets, presentations and videos will be available to you in the NTU NOW Learning Room, along with extra information you will need to help you to complete your assignment. In addition, you will have access to the NTU Library where you will be able to access further reading materials.
