Marketing students from Peterborough have clinched great results in their exams – beating the national average.
Marketers from Peterborough featured prominently in the results of professional qualifications exams published by The Chartered Institute of Marketing last week.
Overall, the results show a 94 per cent pass rate for Peterborough candidates who studied with Marketing Ability, with 12 per cent achieving distinction grades for these internationally CIM recognised qualifications.
In the CIM Professional Diploma, one of the most sought-after marketing qualifications, 100 per cent of Marketing Ability candidates passed.
The courses for these qualifications in Peterborough are run by the locally-based training business Marketing Ability through their Peterborough College of Marketing division. Principal tutor at the college Bob Hogg said: “We are delighted that our students hard work has paid off.
They all combined their studies with full-time jobs and other commitments, so i’s especially impressive that they did so well, outshining the national averages by a long way. “There are a large number of organisations with their marketing decision-makers based in Peterborough, together with numerous marketing support companies.
“This means that Peterborough has a vibrant marketing community, and these results prove there are new marketing professionals making progress in their careers to ensure this community carries on well into the future.”

The college is also holding an induction evening at the Marriott Hotel in Lynch Wood on 7th September
