Nationwide Autocentre name apprentice of the year

Nationwide Autocentre has recently celebrated its annual Apprentice of the Year competition.

Scott Mumford triumphed for the second year running and was named Apprentice of the Year from 180 apprentices currently training with Nationwide Autocentre.

Bill Collins, training manager for Nationwide Autocentre, said: “We have invested heavily into our apprentice programme over the years. To date we have successfully trained over 500 apprentices, with all in the last five years being offered permanent employment following their graduation.

“This competition makes sure to celebrate the talents of our young mechanics and this year we’ve had a really high standard of apprentices, so to be shortlisted for Apprentice of the Year is an achievement in itself.  It’s a daunting process, and they have dealt with it well. The apprentices taking part in this are the cream of the crop, which makes Scott the crème de la crème.

Chief executive Duncan Wilkes said: “Nationwide Autocentre has a high standard of training and we’re proud to have such skilled individuals within the organisation. Everyone should be very proud to have been taken through to this stage and it is a great testament to their ability.

“We strive to make our people the best they can be and the enthusiasm and dedication shown by our apprentices is a testament to the scheme’s success. I’d like to congratulate Scott for his achievement and say that he thoroughly deserves his title,” he added.
