What will I learn?
Junior Content Producers collaborate with designers and developers, using authoring languages to create content for the World Wide Web, which may include video, images, text (or “copy”) and web pages and social media content, so an enthusiasm for technology and creating great online experiences is a must. They can work in advertising, marketing or digital agencies, or in interactive roles for broadcasters or for learning.
Content Planning, development, creation & evaluation will all be learnt as part of the programme alongside behaviours and industry awareness expected of businesses within this field.
As part of the apprenticeship programme you will be required to undertake both on and off-the-job training. While your employer will be responsible for your training on-the-job (workplace), the College and your employer will be jointly responsible for your off-the-job training enabling you to help develop the right knowledge, skills and behaviours to become competent in your job role.
You will attend College for one block residential week and once a month thereafter via live online interaction with tutors, to consolidate your theory and to support your studies. This will be for the duration of your programme with us, to gain knowledge and develop some practical skills. You will also be expected to study remotely, with access to your tutors every week. The College will agree additional off-the-job training with your employer to ensure you develop the majority of your skills and behaviours in the workplace.
What grades will I need?
Five GCSEs at 9–4/A*–C (Including English and Maths).
How will I be assessed?
Apprentices must meet the knowledge, skills, and behaviours as defined within the standard. All apprentices must take an independent assessment at the end of their training to assess their ability and competence in their job role.
Where will it lead me?
Junior Content Producers may progress into Content Creation/Development roles at more senior levels across the industry, including with digital agencies, broadcasters, education and publishers.
