SCH employees Satty Kaur and Ria Gillespie have taken the next step on the professional ladder by earning qualifications that enhance their respective roles.

Satty has secured a level four Certificate in Professional Digital Marketing after completing a one-year on-line course that included modules in marketing, integrated communications and digital marketing. The qualification also involved a written exam.

The course has enabled Satty to gain more knowledge and understanding of the digital world and will help her with the skills to progress a successful career in marketing.

“By studying marketing, integrated communications and digital marketing, it will help me to progress further in my role and enable me to stay ahead in my field of work. It will also provide me with the opportunity to network with other marketers and increase my confidence within my role,” says Satty.

Ria ‘s qualification means that she has progressed to level four of the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), having previously completed the level 2 NVQ and 3 Diploma in Accountancy with AAT. She originally started in the company’s agency call centre but was offered a role within the accounts team when the company learned she was studying with the AAT.

Her latest year-long course involved a mix of study days and self-study, with Ria confident the qualification will offer her more opportunities. “It will open several more doors for me and gives me the knowledge to complete any tasks at hand in my current role,” she adds.

Ria is now looking at the possibility of progressing to Accountant level by studying to graduate into the ranks of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
