Top marks once again for Chichester College marketing students
Marketing students at Chichester College have once again recorded a 100% pass rate across the board.
The students – studying CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing) qualifications at levels 3, 4 and 6 – all passed their year with flying colours, with more than 70% receiving Merits or Distinctions.
It’s the sixth year to see the college return such high success rates, which consistently places Chichester among the best in the world for CIM courses.
Shelagh Legrave OBE, Chief Executive of the Chichester College Group, said: “We are extremely proud of our record of success for our CIM courses.
“We have an incredible pedigree – to achieve 100% pass rates for six consecutive years across all levels is no mean feat.
“And what makes this even more impressive, is when we consider the students are mostly also in full-time employment and are juggling work and study, along with their home lives.
“We see people come in to study CIM from all walks of life, and we frequently hear from former students who have progressed further in their careers since qualifying with us.
“It is truly inspiring.”
Over the past few years, students at Chichester College also recorded the highest marks internationally - that’s according to the CIM results tables in 2018 and 2019.
Luke Haskell was one of those students in 2018, having completed his level 4 and then level 6 qualifications at the college.
Luke started on a marketing apprenticeship, working for TJ Waste & Recycling and studying at Chichester College. Since completing his CIM studies, he has progressed to become General Manager at the firm.
Luke said: “I thought a CIM qualification was one of the best qualifications for me to undertake and I have never looked back.
“The courses were both really good and the quality of teaching, as well as the support we received, was exceptional.
“I think it has helped my career – it has certainly given me credibility and many of the concepts that we covered actually feed into other areas of the business. It’s more than ‘just’ marketing.
“I’ve now just completed an MBA in Business and I found I was able to draw upon what I learnt for that too.”
Chichester College runs a variety of marketing qualifications, all accredited through the CIM, designed for both experienced practitioners as well as those who are new to marketing.
In September, the college is launching the CIM Level 4 Applied Marketing qualification as an online course and will be delivering the CIM Level 6 Marketing and Digital Strategy course over three Saturdays, supported with remote tutorials.
You can also climb onto the first step in your marketing career with a CIM Level 3 in Marketing Principles.
