For Jade, aged 20, her role as Business Administration Apprentice covers much more than a day in the office. She is developing skills in Account Management in digital communications, helping on filming shoots on location and multi-media activities for clients from around the UK.

Based in smart new offices in Kempston, Yakety Yak has welcomed the help of the Bedford College business support team.

Said Roy Testa, who founded the company with son Ross: “We are great fans of Bedford College and its commitment to developing young talent so it was the obvious place to ask for help about recruiting a new member of our team. 

The college helped us through the paper trail and Jade has one day a week there linking the theory to our practises.

Jade, who lives in Kempston said: “This is such an exciting place to work. I can’t believe some of the people who pop up on our screens.”
