I’ve always been interested in cars so I couldn’t wait to start my apprenticeship. I’ve been supported throughout my journey by my peers, trainers and mentors. If you’re thinking about applying, I would say go for it. Many doors have been opened for me as a result of my apprenticeship.

My parts apprenticeship has given me so many opportunities. My training and progression is supported by my mentor and manager and I know I can always go to them for help when I need it. I really enjoy working with customers and providing them with great service.
