From Digital Apprentice to Digital Assistant

From Digital Apprentice to Digital Assistant

Hear ‘Apprentice’ and you’ll normally think of ‘You’re fired!’, however, the complete opposite’s happened to our four new apprentices who’ve all been told ‘You’re hired!’

What’s happened in the last twelve months?

You may remember back in September last year we began piloting a new Digital Apprenticeship programme, taking on four apprentices in partnership with Bournemouth & Poole College. As we continue to strive to ‘go digital’ our apprentices have been working in various areas across the business to help drive our digital agenda.

Upon completing their 12 month apprenticeship each will receive a certificate for the Level Three Apprenticeship in Digital Marketing and Social Media. We’re pleased to say that it’s been such a success that each of our apprentices has secured permanent positions which they’ll start on 7 September...

An extra special congratulations to…

Shonola who’s been nominated for the ‘Exceptional Students Award’ as part of Bournemouth & Poole College’s 2016 awards ceremony. Shonola has completed the apprenticeship two months ahead of the final deadline and will find out if she’s a winner at an event at the Royal Bath Hotel in September. So, good luck to Shonola!

So, what’s next?

We’ll be welcoming two new apprentices, Caitlyn and Ashleigh, who’ll join Internal Comms on 12 September, so good luck to them!

Congratulations again to our new Digital Assistants. We look forward to seeing what they’ll do to help us ‘go digital’.
