ONE Oxfordshire teenager will not be concerned by A-Level results day tomorrow - since she has already landed an apprenticeship with Google.

Mia Collins, from Wantage, is getting set to start with the technology giant on Monday, October 21.

The former King Alfred's Academy pupil will do digital marketing and video editing with the company for a year and a half - and then hopes to get a permanent role.

Miss Collins, 18, explained: "I am really excited, it is definitely different from anything I have ever done before.

"I didn't think I would be offered anything like that."

The youngster, who was planning on doing her A-Levels at King Alfred's and then studying English at university, ended up going to West London's Global Academy after finishing school.

The Hayes-based institution specialises in broadcast and digital media education and works closely with the media industry to prepare youngsters for employment.

Miss Collins explained: "On the radio one day I heard an advert (for Global Academy) and I happened to get in.

"I knew that it would be something new that I hadn't really done before."

She was quick to thank her teachers, adding that the academy gave her the skills to apply for jobs and that she never expected to work with the American corporation.

From October, she will be based in its Covent Garden offices, after impressing at the academy.

She said: "I’ve learnt so much about the media industry. I began my two year course with extremely limited media experience; now I feel more confident about my future than ever before and I’m so excited to showcase my knowledge.”

Students at the school, founded by entertainment group Global, study a University of Arts London-approved Level 3 Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production and Technology, and have regular practical industry work experience.

Miss Collins, who had a two hour commute each way to attend classes, also took part in a variety of projects which involved creating digital content for various brands, including Capital XTRA, We the Unicorns and for Strictly Come Dancing’s AJ Pritchard.

She was also selected to attend the Royal Television Society’s annual student conference and worked with IMG Studios and Premiere League Productions on a live TV training project.

Looking ahead, she will now embark on a Level Three Qualification in Digital Marketing and is 'hopeful' of landing a permanent role working with the teams she will be placed with during her apprenticeship. Longer term, she says she would 'love to be a video editor, perhaps in film or TV'.

Noting that she now did not have any concerns about tomorrow's results, she added: "It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

"It just shows exam results aren't the be all and end all."

Principal Jonty Archibald said: “We’re very proud of our students like Mia. It’s great to see their hard work and passion recognised by some of the UK’s biggest media companies."
