What is our teaching approach?

We run our courses on weekdays and (sometimes for Level 6) weekend sessions. For our CIM Level 3 and 4 courses we are able to deliver 1 module every month which means we can run between 3-4 cohorts per year (most other Study Centres run 1 cohort per year). And because each of CIM’s qualifications is made up bite-sized modules, students have the ability to join our courses at different times of the year and not at one fixed point.

All of our tutors are vastly experienced in both teaching CIM courses and have many years’ expeience of teaching in industry.

Since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic we have run all courses ‘live’ through Zoom/WebEx. This means we have also been able to do student feedback sessions through this medium.

How do virtual classes work?

For much of 2020 ( and we envisage the first part of 2021) this course has been delivered ‘live’ through a virtual platform. Each module offers up to 15 hours of ‘Live’ Virtual Classrooms. All courses are delivered through WebEx/Zoom which allows us to stream HD-quality video of our courses direct to your laptop, desktop or tablet. This means you can participate from the comfort of your home/office, anywhere. Learn more about CIM Virtual Classrooms.

Just a few Google reviews from CIM students…

My experience with Marketing Tom Media has been great from start to finish. Alun and his team have been brilliant with communication and were always there to help with any questions about exams papers etc.

I started studying my CIM level 4 so that I could enhance my marketing knowledge and bring these skills to my current role, and I can safely say it has done this. The tutors are very knowledgeable and have hands-on experience in the marketing industry so really are the best to learn from.

Keavy

The level of teaching from Marketing Tom is incredibly high quality. Alun and his team are extremely knowledgable, professional and experienced. Their courses have helped me develop from a complete beginner in Marketing to a confident and qualified member of a Communication’s team. Highly recommend.
Simon

Alun and the team at Marketing Tom Media offer fantastic tuition and support! The knowledge I’ve gained from completing a CIM qualification , has helped me secure a new Marketing role. Highly recommended!
Sam

I achieved a Level 4 CIM qualification with Marketing Tom Media and I cannot recommend them highly enough! The course leaders were extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of marketing and really taught me a lot in such a short space of time. No question was too silly or obvious and the teachers were more than happy to explain any topic that needed further clarification.

The course itself covered not only marketing theory but a range of real business examples that helped me to better understand how marketing principles are applied in practice. I continue to use what I learnt throughout the course on an almost daily basis in my job. 100% recommend Marketing Tom!
