A little while ago, back when we had just taken on Charlie as our first apprentice in fact, we were approached by a confident young lady studying at Knole Academy, just down the road from us in Sevenoaks. She was taking A-levels in Graphics, Art and Business, and had a real passion for design. We like to think that’s what drew her to our website in the first place!
We felt we had a lot in common with Fiona, especially when we found out that Orpington was her hometown before moving to Sevenoaks - our former location for a while before our own move back.
So when it came to taking on a second apprentice this year, Fiona was at the top of our list. She joins us just as we head back downstairs to the newly refurbished studio, where there will room for all of us round our lovely new table. She’ll also be in easy reach of the team and her mentors who will be involved in her progression and development.
We’ve made a few changes to our apprenticeship scheme, this time favouring an online provider so lucky Fiona can spend more time with us rather than be away at college, something Charlie probably wishes we’d thought of earlier!
If you happen to be popping in or picking up the phone to us over the next few weeks and you’re taken back by the polite and professional sounding young lady on the other end, please join us in giving Fiona a warm welcome to the team. We look forward to a new year of new posts and projects from our new apprentice!
