If you’re considering a career in digital marketing or web development, have you thought of doing an apprenticeship? There are a plethora of benefits of undertaking one. To get you started here’s a guide from our digital marketing agency in Guildford of 6 benefits:


Earn While You Learn

Going to university can be great. But it’s not for everyone and there are other options. With an apprenticeship, you’ll get some great experience in your field and you’ll earn money at the same time! Sounds like a win-win situation. 


Hands On Work Experience

As a digital marketing agency in Guildford that hires many apprentices, we believe the best way to learn is by doing. With an apprenticeship you get to implement the training that you’re learning into a real life scenario. Many people find that they understand things during training, but when they come to do the task they have additional questions. By doing an apprenticeship you’re learning on the job, so you can ask all the questions as you go and put your knowledge into practice straight away. 


Career Growth & Transferable Skills

Apprenticeships are a great way to begin your career in your chosen field with practical, hands on experience. In many cases an apprenticeship can result in a permanent position at the company. But even if this isn’t in the cards, the skills you gain can be applied to other companies. This will set you on track for a great future in your industry. 


Work Under Leading Industry Experts 

Another benefit of apprenticeships is that you’ll be working alongside other employees in your industry. Take a look at the senior member of staff in your field to consider where you want your career to progress to after your apprenticeship. What do they do day in and day out? Is this something you would want to do in the future? Use this information to consider how you want your career to progress. Then you’ll know what experience you need more of to prepare yourself for this future role. 


Build Your CV With Qualifications 

At the end of your apprenticeship, you will get a qualification that you can put on your CV. This will help make you more employable and qualified when seeking other positions.
