Digital Marketing Apprentice

‘I can honestly say I learnt more practical skills in the 3 weeks at Making The Leap than I did during my 3 years at university. CV workshops, mock interview skills with staff and corporate companies, leadership sessions and so much more.  I cannot believe they were able to fit so much content and corporate visits within such a short time. My mindset has completely changed.’
