Social media has revolutionised the way we develop, consume and share information. Now South Australian students are the first to access a new cutting-edge social media program aimed at creating our social media marketing professionals of the future.
TAFE SA is the first TAFE in Australia to offer the Diploma of Social Media Marketing (10118NAT) with applications are now open for a Semester 2 intake.
Michael Ewer, Principal Lecturer at TAFE SA, is coordinating the program and says there is a growing skills gap for qualified social media professionals.
“Almost 90% of Australians between the ages of 15 and 64 years are active social media users and social media advertising is growing rapidly,” says Michael.
“Now is a great time for students, or even those already in marketing, to really embrace social media and become the experts that will shape social media marketing in the future.”
The program has been developed by national and international social media experts and is very much aligned to the needs of industry and provides a great launching pad into a career in social media marketing.
The Diploma of Social Media Marketing focuses on the needs of the student, not only school leavers, but marketing professionals that want to gain the most out of using social media knowing how quickly the digital world is changing.
The nationally accredited qualification is very much a hands-on practical approach to social media marketing, with students not only gaining practical experience in local industry, but learning new skills that will enable them to develop their own personal brand and tangible portfolio of work
The Diploma of Social Media Marketing is aimed at school leavers who want to pursue a career in social media, as well as advertising and marketing professionals who would like to further develop their social media skills and obtain formal qualifications in social media.
Small business operators and entrepreneurs looking to bring their social media resources inhouse can also benefit from this course.
Students can study the course online or at TAFE SA’s Adelaide Campus from July 2019.
