Digital Marketing DA
I highly recommend pursuing a degree apprenticeship to anyone seeking a fulfilling and valuable learning experience. This apprenticeship journey has been the best decision I've made, providing me with the opportunity to gain four years of industry experience alongside obtaining a degree. I have not only acquired a wide range of practical skills but also developed in confidence and been able to believe in my abilities. Employers value the combination of industry experience and a degree, and I am confident that this apprenticeship will open doors to exciting opportunities in my career. The Digital Marketing Degree Apprenticeship has provided me with a solid foundation for a successful future. Take the leap, and you won't regret the immense value and growth it brings to your professional and personal life!


“I'll always be incredibly grateful for the opportunity Utilita Energy has given me to upskill. My apprenticeship has been life changing - I've learnt so much, my confidence in myself has grown massively and I've met some amazing people. Massive thank you to Utilita and the L&D team, University of Chichester and to my fantastic support network at work, home and University.”
