We are delighted to be running a range of Social Media Skills courses in collaboration with Accelerate Cheshire and Warrington. These are practical courses designed to develop and build skills, giving delegates the opportunity to upskill their current position in the workplace.

Our social media skills courses are available to delegates who are over 19 years old, live or work in the Chester and Warrington area, and are in current employment.

All courses are one day workshops which are delivered over two consecutive half days. We are offering the following courses:

Accelerate Cheshire and Warrington is a £30M programme that has been designed to support businesses to reskill and upskill their current workforce. This programme is in partnership with the University of Chester and is partly funded by the European Social Fund. Delegates eligible for the funding would only need to pay 60% of the workshop price, whilst the other 40% would be funded through the Accelerate programme.

All learners must be aged 19+ and be based in the Chester and Warrington Region. Delegates must also have proof of their right to live/work in the UK.

You do not necessarily need to be a digital expert already; you just need a good grasp of the English language and a willingness to learn new skills. You may apply as an individual or through your employer.

All delegates receive a Certificate of Completion for the workshops.

If delegates which to further their studies, there is an opportunity to gain an OCN Accredited Award in the corresponding workshop topic e.g. OCN Award in Search Engine Marketing. Delegates would need to complete a workbook style assignment and pay an OCN London assessment fee of £120 + VAT.
