The flexibility to accommodate and work around these challenges has been brilliant. The quality of the presentations and videos has been excellent and yourself and Adrian are first class Tutors. Your enthusiasm and passion for the subject is infectious and you have a real skill for making particular topics accessible and understandable. Areas previously shrouded in mystery to me now make sense!
All round great service and quality of support and teaching and materials. I have to confess I wasn't sure what to expect from the course or the Academy and have been very impressed. I've done Open University courses before and have a degree from them but this has been my only experience of distance learning. I would recommend you guys no hesitation.
I originally saw the Online Marketing course from Shaw Academy on Groupon. It caught my eye as I have a marketing degree which I completed 7 years ago – at which time we didn’t focus too much on digital marketing. I was hesitant at first as I hadn’t heard of Shaw Academy, or the diploma I was able to get from taking the course. I looked further into the deal and read the fine print and also researched the company. All seemed legit and I thought worst case scenario was that I wouldn’t be able to improve my CV, but might enjoy learning about this area of marketing.
Since taking the course and talking about it on my CV, I have actually now been offered a job as an Online Affiliate Marketing Executive – my first marketing job since I left university! (I have been swept along in Supply Chain roles since then). Previously I had found it hard to find marketing roles due to having no experience (how do you get experience without being given opportunities!?) Having the course on my CV showed I was willing to learn on my own time, had an interest in the subject, and now had a knowledge of affiliate and online marketing. I would not have got this job unless I did this course – it’s as simple as that! I start in June and no doubt I will use what I have learnt on the course a lot.
From the start the communication about the course was helpful and clear which was good as I hadn’t done an online course before. I was a bit concerned that I may not be able to attend all the sessions but was advised quite soon that it was ok and I would be able to read over the material afterwards. Adrian, who led our course, was brilliant. We couldn’t have asked for a friendlier, more enthusiastic teacher who clearly loves what he does. Each night the hour flew by. It didn’t matter that there were people at various levels of understanding on the course because Adrian was happy to stop and explain where people were struggling with terminology etc. Slides and notes were available and uploaded onto the website quickly which meant I could catch up in time for the next lesson. The website is easy to use and access everything I needed. The live sessions were run really well, I hadn’t used webinars before but they allowed good interaction between student and teacher.
I would recommend Shaw Academy to anyone looking to build upon their own knowledge – whatever the subject. I did the course because it was on special offer – but now having completed the course I can see that it would be worth the full price too! The company has been supportive throughout the process, not just in the lessons but outside of it too. Any time I have emailed with queries or comments I have had a response rapidly.
Overall, the experience with Shaw academy has been very positive and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
I am so happy I decided to enrol in this course. I learned a great deal from the live lessons, the course setup was brilliant and all of the materials and resources were at hand whenever I needed them. I could not have succeeded nor acquired such a great outcome without these. The whole experience to me was a wow factor. The support was amazing whenever I had questions or needed knowledge of how to do whatever puzzled me at the time. I have never seen nor experienced such a great support team. The Shaw Academy stood by every second of the way for me.
Thank you Shaw Academy and all its staff for giving me confidence in myself and assisting me to completion, which I sometimes thought was not possible. Thank you!”
After I decided to move into the field of Digital Marketing, I was at first looking for a course to introduce me to the basics, which could potentially unlock the door to a specific area within the field, preferably copywriting. What I found however, was an interconnected web of modules that all had their place in marketing in this new and exciting digital world. This at first seemed daunting, but due to the quality of the webinars and the dedication that Matthew Wall and Charlene displayed to applying knowledge to practical situations where possible, with web page examples etc, I was able to string it altogether and achieve a distinction in my final exam.
Additionally, the NCFE Online Marketing Course has done more than simply broaden my knowledge. It has also opened up an immediate opportunity within my current workplace and I am now a part-time Content Marketing Executive for the exciting re-branding of the Mortgage and Insurance Network I currently work for. I am already applying the knowledge and techniques learnt throughout the course and I believe that the slides and notes still accessible through the Shaw Academy website will still have a part to play in my new career.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Shaw Academy for a fantastic course and I would recommend this to anyone looking to begin, or further their career in modern marketing"
The Diploma in Online Marketing is the perfect introduction for anyone wishing to venture into the online marketing arena. Shaw Academy not only deliver their promise but go the extra mile to ensure a 100% targeted, hands-on, tuition and their student support service matches colleges where you would expected to spend many 000s of pounds. Even after the first tuition sessions I was able to look at the internet from a completely new and productive perspective.
Being a freelance web designer this course gave me the knowledge to widen the range of services i can now offer to my clients. Now i am able to better guide and advice clients for specific and targeted goals
Online Digital marketing course is great - really like the interaction platform and getting really good material, support and case studies that makes the course practical and worth time spend - hope to do many more! Thanks Richard Hegarty and Shawsters!!!
