Meet our 21st Cohort!

Having just completed our July Boot Camp with 22 employers and 54 candidates it’s safe to say that it was a huge success! We had some of the top companies in their fields on the lookout for a new Digital Marketing Apprentice, including: Manchester Airport, Scruff of the Neck, Northern Power Women and Social Chain.
