I didn’t really enjoy going to school and enrolled on a motor vehicle course at a local college. I completed this at level 1 but I wasn’t really into modern cars, I found the older cars far more interesting.
I saw an apprenticeship scheme being advertised by a local Rolls Royce garage and decided to apply for it. I was very lucky to get offered a place on the course. I thought I wanted to work on the mechanical side but after spending time in the coachworks I found that I preferred this side of the industry.
I have now finished Level 2 and am waiting for the Level 3 course to start, I have been helped by the people I work with and the tutor and assessor from college. It has been good that we are taught in a classroom at work.
