Pearson BTEC Level 1 Award in Social Media (QCF)


Our BTEC Level 1 qualification in Social Media develops the skills and knowledge that learners need to start a career in Social Media / IT.

This course aims to develop awareness of a wide range of social media platforms, both general use and specialist types. Learners will develop their understanding of how to use social media effectively for personal and business purposes and the benefits and risks associated with that use.

This will then allow learners to set up, use and maintain appropriate social media tools and develop the skills required to customise tools, create and optimise content and make the best use of tools and techniques to grow their personal online presence.
