Give your digital marketing career a boost, and receive the recognition you deserve for your web and social media skills. The SQA Diploma in Digital Marketing allows you to study at your own time and pace, supported by our digital coaches and online learning system.
Develop your Digital Skills
The SQA Diploma in Digital Marketing is delivered in partnership between NSDesign and Training Matters, and has been specifically designed to maximise the potential and professionalise the role of those involved with digital marketing within organisations.
Unlike ‘traditional’ classroom learning, completing the diploma involves YOU pro-actively doing a lot of the work and learning, with us giving monthly group workshops (usually via webinar), as well as regular 1-2-1 coaching, guidance, and peer support (via our private Facebook group).
Achieve a nationally recognised professional qualification
The blended learning programme offers a methodical approach to the development of digital marketing skills by utilising an online portfolio support system allowing candidates to work at their own pace, at the most convenient time and location for themselves. This system also encourages online communication between candidates encouraging the exchange of good practice between professionals. All online programmes are supported by tutorials and coaching.
