Apprentices in the driving seat at Chester Auto Services

April 2, 2015

Family-owned motor business, Chester Auto Services Limited, has helped drive their business forward after appointing two Apprentices through West Cheshire College. 

The garage on Bumpers Lane in Chester, appointed Daniel Johnson, 20, from Chester as a Motor Vehicle Apprentice in 2012. Daniel has since completed his Apprenticeship and has gone on to secure a permanent job as a Technician with the business.

Following Daniel’s success, the garage has now appointed its second Apprentice through the College, Ben Woodhouse, 17, from Blacon in Chester.

Nick Stanyer, Owner at Chester Auto Services, said: “We’ve benefitted enormously from having Apprentices as we have been able to train both Daniel and Ben as to the real nuts and bolts of our business.

“Daniel had previously studied Motor Vehicle Maintenance at the College so was already really well trained. Both Apprentices have progressed hugely since being here and have shown a lot of loyalty to the business.

“The College has provided a great service and due to the success of the scheme, we plan to continue to take on Apprentices in the future.”

Matt Syrett, Business Development Executive at West Cheshire College, said: “We are delighted that Chester Auto Services has seen the positive benefits of running an Apprenticeship programme within their business.

“Daniel’s success with the company is a great example of how an Apprenticeship can be the first stepping stone for young people to start their careers.

“For companies wishing to recruit an Apprentice then we will work closely with them to ensure we find the right candidate. We also provide continued training to help the Apprentice strengthen their skills and knowledge.”
