Our Digital Marketing Apprentice, Whitney Sharp and our Head of Agency Marketing Michaela Dudfield collaborated with the Bournemouth and Poole College, giving their insights into the apprenticeship program. They answered some questions giving an idea about their experiences of apprenticeships.
The key takeaways were:
- How to recruitment an apprentice
- Finding the right apprentice
- Working with an apprentice during a pandemic
- Supporting an apprentice
- The benefits of employing an apprentice
- How an apprentice can help a business
“Our apprentice is full of ideas and it’s great to see these come to life and make a real difference to the business. Initially I helped Whitney with how to post our podcast, Word on the Street, on our website and social media platforms. I’m now able to leave her to do the website on her own when each episode is released, which has enabled me to work on other things within the business.” Michaela Dudfield.
“Having the ability to be creative and see the practical side of things is a great way to learn skills you can use in any industry.” Whitney Sharp.
