Marketing Skills Courses

Following extensive conversations with real organisations, we know that, particularly for smaller businesses, individuals often have a range of roles and responsibilities to juggle at once. That’s why we have created a series of flexible marketing courses to ensure your workforce has the fundamental skills needed to market your business successfully.

NTU is committed to continued learning and professional development. Opportunities may be fully funded or subsidised for eligible participants through our ESIF projects.

This project is part-funded by the European Social Fund (ESF).

Practical Marketing Skills (Level 3)

NTU’s Practical Marketing Skills course was developed in 2020 in response to local business needs and aims to address skills shortages in this area.

Whether you’re a business owner, manager or an employee of an SME that is responsible for marketing, this four-day course will increase your marketing knowledge and skills, and will ensure your business has the right tools to engage with your audiences and stand out against competitors.

The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) at Level 3. In July 2021, this course received a commendation from the CIM for teaching excellence thanks to the outstanding performance of our April 2021 cohorts.

By signing up to this course and opting to take a timed assessment on completion, you will receive a one-year membership to the CIM providing unlimited access to expert marketing tutorials, resources and networking opportunities On passing the assessment, you will gain 12 credit points towards a full CIM Level 3 Foundation Certificate in Professional Digital Marketing.

This course is delivered through the ESF-funded ‘Smart and Inclusive Leadership’ project. To find out more details about the courses available and dates, visit the project page or contact us at esf@ntu.ac.uk.
