Billy Shephard our apprentice at My Nametags, showed his support for National Apprenticeship Week on Friday by making an appearance at St Mary’s CE Primary School in Putney. He labelled anything and everything he could lay his hands on from the school’s spare uniform, in case of art-room spillages and playground accidents, to school, office and playground equipment with labels personalised for St Mary’s.
Billy said “I wanted to promote the National Apprenticeship Scheme because an apprenticeship has helped me to gain vital work experience whilst gaining a highly sought after qualification. It has also given me the skills and confidence needed to be competent within my job role.”

My Nametags took on Billy last year as an apprentice at the head office in Putney. Throughout this time Billy showed great skill and initiative and is about to gain his customer service qualification. As well as his training in customer service, Billy also attended a graphic design course; so he is now designing name tags as well as assisting customers and maintaining the smooth running of the office. We were so taken with Billy’s work ethic and diligence that we have just offered him a permanent contract.
Lars Andersen, Managing Director here at My Nametags said “We think the National Apprenticeship Scheme (NAS) is vital in helping young people to develop their skills and for the opportunity to gain successful employment. We also believe that the NAS is important for companies like ourselves in finding enthusiastic and hardworking young people.
We would definitely recommend the apprenticeship scheme and will happily be taking on another apprentice in the coming months”.
