Maya Ings, a former student at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Ashbourne, has now started a Business Administration training scheme with us.
The 16-year-old, from Ashbourne, joins us from Buxton college after studying towards her Level 3 Public Service qualification.
She said: “I’m really happy to join the team at Shepherd PR.
“The apprenticeship will give me the opportunity to gain both qualifications and workplace experience.”
Our apprenticeship programme, made possible by long-term relationships with a growing list of clients including Crown Paints, provides the opportunity to learn about public relations, social media and video.
It has already proved a success for two former students at QEGS.
Kathryn Moorcroft is now a full-time PR Account Executive at the business after completing a 12-month social media and digital marketing apprenticeship.
The 20-year-old is also studying towards a leadership and management qualification.
Georgia Handley, 18, has moved into full-time employment at John Pye Auctions after starting her career and achieving her business administration qualification with us.
