The NSMC  provides world-class training, from entry-level introductions to accredited social marketing courses for practitioners.

We've trained over 10,000 people in social marketing, and we believe in embedding learning in every project we deliver. 


Our online social marketing training course will give you a grounding in social marketing concepts, and help you develop the skills to put together an effective behaviour change programme.

Social Marketing Award courses

Our regular two-day Award course teaches delegates the skills to plan and implement a social marketing programme, and offers the chance to take an assessment leading to The NSMC Level 4 Social Marketing Award, accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing. The date for the next course is 7th & 8th March 2017 and you can click here to found out more information and access our online booking system

Bespoke training 

We can also build skills through workshops designed purely around your organisation's strategic objectives. We have created bespoke training for hundreds of organisations worldwide. For example we:

  • designed and rolled out a regional training programme for 3,000 NHS staff,
  • trained local obesity leads to use the new Change4Life segmentation of English families to design more effective programmes to reduce childhood obesity,
  • worked with the UK's Department for International Development to design and deliver a five-day workshop for key HIV-prevention staff working in China's seven southwest provinces.


If you're an experienced social marketing professional we can offer tailored mentoring support, working with you at any stage of programme development, implementation and evaluation.
