CMETB & Monaghan Institute launch a Career Traineeship in Digital Marketing

Are you interested in working in Digital Marketing?

 If so, Cavan and Monaghan ETB’s new Career Traineeship in Digital Marketing based at Monaghan Institute is for you. Due to commence in September 2018, this course offers an industry specific qualification and is aimed at learners entering the Digital Marketing sector, as well as those already working in these areas who are looking to renew their skills with formal training. 

What is a Career Traineeship?

 A Career Traineeship is an occupational skills development training programme that is tailored to the identified needs of a specific industry sector or sub-sector and leads to nationally recognised qualifications. The traineeship combines directed off the job training (classroom-based learning) in Monaghan Institute with on-the-job training (work-based learning) delivered within a company. This approach provides students with the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and competence within a supportive working environment. The duration of the programme is 38 weeks to include 30% work placement.

Undertaking a programme of learning in a real work context further increases the prospects of employment. Following completion of this traineeship, it is intended that many of the students will transition to employment with the company after successful interviews. Some may also wish to continue immediately with their learning and development.

Career Traineeships are funded by the Irish Government and the European Support Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014 – 2020.

What next?

Applicants may be eligible for a training, travel and meal allowance or a company bursary. For further details please visit the course page here
