A 23-year-old from Kettering is on the path to becoming a social media guru after taking up an apprenticeship at the Digital Youth Academy at Tresham College.

Jessica Goodes works at Dragon Infrastructure Solutions as a PA to the chief executive and sales and tendering coordinator.

Tresham is the only college in the county to offer the accredited course thanks to a £50,000 grant from Northamptonshire County Council.

Jessica said: “I’m really enjoying it. I’m learning so much every day and we’re currently reviewing and comparing the various social media networks so that we understand the pros and cons for each channel.”

Rachel Kay, deputy principal and managing director at Tresham, added: “We’re delighted with how much interest we’ve received since the academy launched.”
